Paddlecraft’s Training Groups, led by Performance Paddling, is Pittwater’s flat water training squad for surf ski paddlers of all levels. Paddling in a group environment is not only more enjoyable but greatly assists in improving your speed and skills with technique correction, high intensity intervals and personalised coaching.
Coached by Cameron & Leda Mcfadzean of Performance Paddling, our group coaching sessions are structured to suit varying levels of surf ski paddlers. The approximate one hour paddling sessions launch at the Maybank Cove beach area adjacent to our Bayview Marina shop location. Paddle routes may vary but will incorporate paddling fitness, distance training and race time / technique improvements for all participants.
Sunday mornings include the ideal intermediate surf ski paddling training (GREEN) squad from 7:30 – 8:30 AM with a new PINK squad paddling from 8:30 – 9:30 for beginner surf ski paddlers especially women. Thursday mornings session start at 6:00 AM for the (SILVER) intermediate / advanced squads with Wednesday’s (GOLD) advanced squads at 5:40 AM. Saturday sessions times vary seasonally with special Palm Beach sessions and other off site paddles scheduled through out the year.
The initial paddling session is free, but bookings are required. Paddlecraft’s Performance Paddling group coaching squads are all weather and for more information on rates, please see http://www.performancepaddling.net.
