The Wrightsville Beach Paddle Club’s 2017 Surf to Sound runs Friday, November 3 to Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the Blockade Runner Beach Resort in Wrightsville Beach, NC. Here’s a list of the clinics being offered at this year’s event.
Paddle Monster 5 Fundamentals of Technique
Paddle Monster Advanced Paddle Technique Clinic featuring an intensive 3-hour session on mastering the five fundamentals of effective technique used by the world’s top racers. Using land drills, water drills and exercises paddlers will learn how to adapt these fundamentals to best fit their own strengths and weaknesses, body size and type etc, just like the pros do. Paddlers should get a better understanding of what they should be trying to achieve in terms of technique when they are paddling and will leave with specific drills and “next steps” to improve their ability to execute these fundamentals at race intensity.
Date: Thursday November 2, 1pm to 4pm
Friday November 3, 9 am to 12noon
Limit: 12 paddlers
SUP in the Surfzone Clinic
SUP Racing technique clinic
This two-hour Stand Up Paddle clinic will take one hour to cover proper technique, and the biomechanics of paddling and then one hour (time permitting based on questions from participants and the needs of the group) to video and analyze each paddler’s stroke. Paddlers can expect to learn proper body position and which muscle groups to engage for each phase of the paddle stroke, which helps avoid injury and increase efficiency.
Date: Friday November 3, 4pm – 6pm
