Chase Kosterlitz Stand Up Paddle Training Book

If you are looking to up your Stand Up Paddleboarding game then we have just the tool for you. The latest e-book by pro Stand Up Paddleboarder Chase Kosterlitz is simply the most thorough and full featured of all the books we have personally read.

Chase Kosterlitz Stand Up Paddle Training Book

While there are quite a few books out on the market for both beginners and aspiring racers alike this is the cream of the crop; particularly for the racing/training crowd. For those who don't know Chase (aka The Water Monkey - pictured at right) he started out as a kiteboarder in the early 2000's only to be one of the early adopters of the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding. Chase helped pioneer the sport in the Tampa Florida area and is regarded as one of the worlds elite stand up paddleboard racers as well as the current president of the Stand Up Paddle Athletes Association.

It is with that back drop that Kosterlitz took pen to paper, albeit digital paper, dumping his years of experience in to one complete ebook titled "SUP Training The Smart Way". While the book is heavy on the training side it also encompasses 250 pages of how to information that even the first time paddler would greatly benefit from.

The book is sold in tandem with a training program and can be purchased in 3 levels. The basic package at $39.95 gets you the ebook and a 16 week basic SUP training program. The Plus package ups the ante to include a 12 week dedicated race training program. Finally the Elite package layers in some one on one coaching alongside some video stroke analysis.

As a paddleboard racer myself I was pleasantly surprised to see years of tips and tricks aggregated in to one easy to follow piece with solid graphical representations of many of the key points of stand up paddleboarding. If you are looking to improve your race results or just looking to improve your paddling then we can highly recommend this as the go to book for raising your game.
