SUP Training A quick overview of what we have covered in the past few sessions. 1. Practice alternate grips that will allow you to adapt your stroke to different situations. 2. There is more than one way to 'choke' down on the paddle shaft so find which one/s work for you and make them a natural part of your paddling array. 3. Often the grip you like in a ready state will be a different one to the one you use when fatiguing towards the conclusion of a race. 4. When you stand up tall into the wind this will essentially create increased 'sail' area, think like a time trial cyclist and get in the tuck to reduce upwind drag. 5. Opposite rules apply downwind, stand tall and present a larger 'sail' area to a tail wind. 6. Think of a paddle stroke like gearing on a bike (a fast bike) fast spinning gears (strokes) to get you started and out of the blocks and marks before flowing into your rhythm when up to speed. Change to Schedule and Venue Please note the new start time of 5 P.M at Mission Bay. The remaining training sessions will conclude with the City Surf Series orientation starting at 6 P.M...perfect to practice what you have just absorbed. Please note sessions are $20 per paddler. Please text or email to confirm your spot as sessions will be limited to 12 paddlers. Week Nine •
