LESSON INFO AND PRICING:
SUP Stroke Video Analysis:
Still can't paddle fast? Have trouble keeping the board tracking straight? Shoulders give out half way through your session? A stroke analysis will help identify errors in your paddle stroke. All that is needed is a 5-minute video recording of you on the water. We use Academy of Surfing Instructors' very detailed grading matrix to examine every phase of your stroke, and follow the advice of leaders in the sport to provide you with stroke-correcting exercises. Includes a two page score sheet, photos, and follow-up consult.
SUP Wise Level 1 Paddleboard Lesson:
Group pricing up to 8 students
This is a basic "foundations" lesson where you will learn basic paddling and board handling skills on calm, flat water. This can be done as one-on-one in a private lesson, or for a group up to eight people.
SUP Wise Level 2 Paddleboard Lesson:
Group pricing up to 4 students
A more advanced lesson in more challenging conditions such as bumpy water, small swell, some shore break, with introduction to SUP surfing. You should be a confident flat water paddler before going on to exposed water conditions. Private lesson, or group up to 5 people.
SUP Paddle Stroke Clinic:
This is best as a 1:1 lesson. The focus is on perfecting the paddle stroke. We spend time on the water as well as do on-land drills, and use video analysis to help identify corrective drills needed for faulty paddle stroke. Perfecting the paddle stroke helps you avoid injury, and increases paddling efficiency. If you are racing, or interested in racing, this is a must.
