Beach Racing Clinic – With Mike Darbyshire

South Chesterman

Friday June 14


4:30pm-6:30pm – On Water

6:30pm-7:30pm – Tacofino dinner and video review

Join National Champion and Pan American Team Canada member Mike Darbyshire for a guided tour of the technical race course where we will go over some tips, techniques and strategies for navigating this exciting course through the surf. We will focus on specific skills, strokes and footwork required to maintain power and speed in and out through the surf zone.  Course includes video analysis and dinner!

We advise that participants dress for immersion during this clinic as we will be practicing turns and a little bit of race board surfing.  The clinic will be relatively short and I will keep the intensity low-moderate to ensure that we don’t tire ourselves out before the main event on Saturday.
