Advanced Paddling Clinic

Join Tofino Paddle Surf and guest instructor, Norm Hann, racer and long distance paddler, for our Advanced SUP Paddling Clinic.Offered throughout  the year, these clinics are designed for paddlers who want to take their SUP skills, paddling techniques, and racing, touring, surfing or fitness to the next level.

These clinics will help you develop a more powerful and efficient forward stroke while improving pivot turns, surf stances, and paddling in dynamic conditions. We focuses on a combination of dry land and on water instruction and feedback that will immediately improve paddling and help you achieve training and paddling goals.

If you love to paddleboard and want to maximize efficiency and the fitness benefits of paddling, this course is a MUST!  The proper and efficient forward stroke is the foundation of all paddling fun, whether in flat water, racing or surf.  Paddle using the wrong muscles and you will cause joint injury.  Learn to paddle properly, avoiding overuse injuries, and you will use your core for a full body workout and grow strong quickly.
