Surfing Paddling Technique Level 1 – Paddling Efficiency, Speed, Injury Prevention

In the Level 1 program, surfers learn an eight step checklist to catch more waves with less effort.  Paddling accounts for over 85% of the active time in the water for surfers.  Of this, regular paddling (paddling out and paddling around) accounts for over 90% of this.  By simply making more efficient and effective movement, surfers save energy that can be used for the other type of paddling – catching a wave.  In Level 2, surfers learn about effective sprint technique, but first they build a strong foundation in Level 1.
