PaddleLife is back at the Canadian Downwind Championships with some exciting news!
PaddleLife, along with the support of its sponsors, presents, The PaddleLife World Tour 2018, with a fresh twist!
We are so excited to announce that Teneale Hatton will be coaching private lessons around the Canadian Surfski Championships this year! Teneale needs little introduction due to her countless achievements across surfski, flatwater kayak and adventure racing background. Well, we can at least start with the fact that she is a multiple World Champion, Olympic athlete, current World Record holder in the K1 1000m and that's just a start!
We are so proud to have her join our team and never before has it been so easy to receive a personal lesson with one of the best in the sport!
Teneale is an extremely experienced surfski coach and conducts her lessons in a friendly and relaxed manner. Each paddler will come away with a whole new field of surfski knowledge and will experience an unforgettable time on the water with one of the best in the sport.
PaddleLife prides itself on offering the highest quality learning experience. Each lesson is adjusted accordingly to suit the level and speed of the paddler being coached. These private lessons are suitable for ALL levels of paddlers no matter your current craft or experience.
Lessons are available in 1-on-1 or 2-on-1 format.
Let us know when suits you and we'll do our best to meet your schedule.
Saturday 14th July is race day for Canadian Champs so unfortunately, that is the one day not available.
An idea of just some of the topics to be covered in the lesson:
- Setting up and optimising your Surfski to suit you
- Paddle Stroke Technique for Surfski
- Run riding, downwind and surf skills
- Stability drills and techniques
- Boat control and handling techniques
- Remounting and safety on the water
- Getting the most out of your paddling
- Training tips and information
- Training motivation
- Racing "tricks of the trade"
- Pre and post race/event preparation
& much more!
We can cover any topic you like and encourage questions!
If you do not have access to a surfski or paddle etc., please let us know, and we will do our best to bring along extra gear for you to use!
If you have been paddling for years and need to get the final touches to your paddling skills or just interested in getting more involved, then this opportunity is for you!
This opportunity is not to be missed! Any level of paddler will benefit from attending a lesson and a super learning experience! We look forward to seeing you!
Safety - all safety equipment is required: a PFD and a leg leash is compulsory
