Paddle Technique Video Analysis

Video analysis gives you meaningful feedback so you can make the improvements necessary to optimize your stroke

Regardless of the sport, in an ideal world coach and athlete are able to work together regularly to not just develop the fitness required for the sport in question but the skills and technique that allow the athlete to perform at the highest level. Paddling is no different, being very technical not only with regards to an effective connection with the water and stroke technique but also skills like beach starts, buoy turns, downwinding and surfing. While our coaches can’t be there in person to help you with your technical development on a daily basis, with a powerful tool like video they can work with you to develop and maintain effective technique and skills. Not only can our coaches use video to isolate elements of your stroke and illustrate what you may or may not be doing, but you can actually see what you’re doing and better understand their instructions and suggestions on what you can do to improve.
