Coaching

 

Surfski paddling is not straightforward; there are a lot of different aspects to the sport. If you would like some friendly advice or just someone to paddle with in challenging conditions, join us for an hour of relaxed coaching.

 

The sessions are based on 3 levels, to progress to the next level the previous level needs to be mastered.

 

Level 1: Donít swim!!!

Level 2: Be comfortable in your ski in any condition.

Level 3: Go faster.

 

Things we look at include:

 

        How to carry a ski.

        What to wear (cold, hot, sun, high viz, safety).

        How so use your paddle to stay upright (brace strokes).

        Weather (wind, waves, fog).

        Safety gear (lifejackets, leash).

        Wind: Headwind, tailwind, sidewind, turning from headwind to tailwind.

        Getting back into your ski after falling out (when itís warm enough).

        Surfing (wind chop, ocean swells, catching waves).

        Paddling technique (paddle faster with less effort).

        Paddling downwind with others.
