Do you ever find yourself paddling for a ton of waves only to actually catch a few? Or do you find yourself feeling off-balance and slow while you’re paddling out? A few years back we made a paddle tutorial that may help you to improve your technique. It’s short, sweet, and right to the point!
The video below covers a few tips and techniques that will help you improve on the strength and length of your stroke, as well as your balance and control. It also includes a few things to avoid doing while you’re paddling.
- Keep your fingers together and your hands in a scoop shape
- Dig your entire arm into the water (up to your armpit)
- Paddle in the shape of the Coco Chanel logo and draw big, “C’s” under your surfboard
- Keep your sh** tight!
