Adventure Racing Training and Instruction
If you compete in Adventure Races you know
the kayaking portion is where you can make or break the race. It's
the leg that gets the least attention during training, yet one capsize
can put you 10 minutes or more behind the pack.
Our Adventure Race training and instruction program is designed
to improve paddling speed, distance and efficiency -- teaching you
to use the core body muscles and high-angle paddle strokes to increase
your on-water performance.
We combine the stroke improvement with the basics of surf zone strategy
and bracing -- to minimize capsizes during launching and landing,
and add in basic rescues and towing, so you can quickly re-enter
your kayak and resume paddling if you do go over.
We can also offer video tape stroke analysis
and on-water training exercises to help you paddle at peak performance.
