Surfing Paddling Technique Mastery Level 2 – Positioning, Timing, Sprint Technique

Mastered the ability to paddle efficiently, but looking to improve top end speed and wave catching timing?  The Surfing Paddling Technique Mastery Level 2 program focuses on the sprint paddle transition to catching a wave.  In addition, we work on the positioning and timing of the paddle so you can learn how to make catching a wave EASY.
