Surfski Clinic With Kenny Howell - San Diego
Friday 28 January 2022, 10:00am - 12:00pm


Good forward stroke technique is essential for surfski paddlers of all levels. Are you getting the most out of every stroke? Are you using your whole body to drive the boat? How can you train injury-free? We will review and refine the forward stroke with the wing paddle as it relates to fitness and racing, emphasizing efficiency and proper biomechanics to increase your speed, power, and stamina. Finesse will always take you further, with less effort than brute strength. We’ll have fun while learning, too! If it’s fun, you’ll just want to learn more.
