Training Squads

Paddlecraft’s Training Squads, 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. Tuesday mornings session start at 6:00 AM for the (GOLD) advanced squads with Friday’s (SILVER) intermediate / advanced squads  at 6:00 AM. One on one training sessions, K1 training and technique clinics run seasonally and are scheduled through out the year.


Bookings are required. Paddlecraft’s Performance Paddling group coaching squads are all weather and for more information on rates, please see Performance Paddling's website. Hire skis are available from Paddlecraft for an additional COST, however, bookings are required and models are limited.
