Your junior paddler will learn the basics of surfski, build solid paddling technique, and inherit a safety awareness, through safe practices while out on the water.
After those foundational sessions, the course moves on to wave surfing and racing techniques. Wake/wave practice and drills will be utilized to build a solid foundation for downwind paddling.
