Intro to Race Training

An introduction to SUP Racing and technique. Are you a Paddle Member looking to get into Race Training this summer? A new racer who wants to refine their paddle stroke and skills in a small group setting?

A Crash Course to prepare you for Race Training, this clinic will cover more advanced SUP skills including refining stroke, steering, turns, and learning how to get more power into your stroke.

We will warm up with the regular race training group, to get a feel for what the set-up and warm-up is like. Then, we will launch after them for a 60-minute lesson in a small group setting.
