Paddling with your Core Clinic

Almost everyone who knows about paddle boarding has heard that it is a great exercise for your core. This is true, but almost all new paddlers have no idea how to engage their core whilst paddling! Learning how to engage your core whilst paddling is a total game changer. Not only does it help you to get fitter, but it reduces the effort required whilst paddling and drastically improves your endurance. This means paddling for longer becomes much easier. Win, Win!

The paddling with core clinic is a 2 hour practical clinic and requires attendees to have either joined the previous zero to hero series, or to be confident paddling on their feet without fear of falling in. It is not suitable for total beginners.

Enjoy a complimentary hot drink from our coffee box at the end of the clinic!

Description

Paddling with your Core Clinic

Almost everyone who knows about paddle boarding has heard that it is a great exercise for your core. This is true, but almost all new paddlers have no idea how to engage their core whilst paddling! Instead, most are relying on arm power alone. Paddling as a beginner with no training dramatically limits your opportunity to go further or faster for long longer. The paddling with core clinic guarantees to radically improve your paddle fitness and core power, unlocking an ability to at least double your current mileage after just one session. 

This clinic will teach you how to paddle with real purpose and power. You will learn how to take full advantage of your body’s natural mechanics to paddle with far less effort per stroke. You will also get an understanding of the in-depth theory on how your paddle works. This will help you to fully connect your brain to the activity so that you can begin the journey of becoming an accomplished and superior paddler. The course will revolutionise your skillset, helping you to begin your journey as a truly accomplished paddle boarder. 

This course is not suitable for total beginners. At a minimum, you will be able to stand and paddle without a constant concern of falling. We recommend you have taken part in our Beginner & Improver Clinic or feel that you are of a fairly confident paddling ability. 

What to wear is the big question… 

If it is your first time paddling, we recommend a wetsuit to help your confidence and settle any worries about falling in or getting cold. During this course, you will be moving around your board a lot. Please be mindful that this means that there is an increased chance of falling in! We rent lovely quality, super stretchy black wetsuits free of charge. 

If you do not like wetsuits, please wear warm layers that you don’t mind getting wet such as gym gear. We highly recommend that new paddlers wear one of our comfy, warm buoyancy aids which are included free of charge. Waterproof socks, barefoot trainers or good quality wetsuit boots are perfect for keeping your feet warm.

For any other questions, please take a look at our FAQ or drop us an email, we’d love to hear from you.
