#62.Two by Two

This month we pair two parts of your stroke together so to help remind you of whats happening at the catch, stroke and exit. We hope that these three pairs will help you create a better activation and remember to focus on boat run through the transition phase / between strokes. Happy Paddling, Coach

#61.Percentages – Downwind Paddling

This month we are going to revisit Podcast#9 and explain this concept as a percentage. Our goal is to always keep paddling in a downwind and even when your coasting, you should remain in contact with the water and have some power on the catch. But how much power and when? Happy Paddling, Coach

If I was to ask you that in a single session I could make you healthier, burn FAT and decrease your stress levels, would you? Dr Phil Maffetone’s ‘THE 180 FORMULA’ is the foundation on which I launched Paddle 2 Fitness and what we have used to train hundreds of our athletes in paddling and […]

On this month’s Paddle 2 Fitness Podcast we discuss how to paddle over boat washes. Paddlers make a number of common errors when these small, closely compacted swells go under their paddling craft. We will explain how your paddle stroke can be adjusted to help paddle over them efficiently.

#20.Paddling Over Swells

On this month’s Surf Ski Coach podcast we talk about paddling over large, very step swells and why you should avoid launching your surf ski into the air. The aim is to keep you surf ski touching the water and paddle over the swell without separating your surf ski from the surface. We hope this […]
