Adventure Racing Training and Instruction

If you compete in Adventure Races you know the kayaking portion is where you can make or break the race. It's the leg that gets the least attention during training, yet one capsize can put you 10 minutes or more behind the pack.

Our Adventure Race training and instruction program is designed to improve paddling speed, distance and efficiency -- teaching you to use the core body muscles and high-angle paddle strokes to increase your on-water performance.

We combine the stroke improvement with the basics of surf zone strategy and bracing -- to minimize capsizes during launching and landing, and add in basic rescues and towing, so you can quickly re-enter your kayak and resume paddling if you do go over.


We can also offer video tape stroke analysis and on-water training exercises to help you paddle at peak performance.
