RAYC Paddling Academy
RAYC is launching it's new Paddling Academy which has been developed to teach secondary school aged youngsters, between 13-19 years old, to paddle. Taught on surf skis by professional paddling coaches, the Paddling Academy is a safe and fun way to introduce young people to the sport of paddling. Learning to paddle on a surf ski is a skill that is transferrable to Olympic flat water sprint kayaking, white water paddling, river paddling, surf lifesaving, surf ski racing and ocean kayaking.
Each programme is taught over eight sessions and covers:
· Correct paddling technique,
· Remounts and basic water safety skills,
· The dynamics of the ocean, wind, tides and wave,
· Downwind paddling.
As a bonus participants will also increase their overall fitness during the programme!
