Shortboards, longboards, and paddleboards are the three types of craft I’ve outlined and the two scenarios we have tried to define are paddling out (or cruising speed), and catching a wave (sprint speed), and for a paddleboard, prone versus knee paddling.
I’m going to feature each one of these scenarios in 6 different videos and at the end, I’ll provide a link so you can download this summary.
You can use this as a reference. Keep in mind this should only be used as a guide – general guidelines. In the Surfing Paddling Academy class (www.surfingpaddling.com), we focus on learning not only what the technique is and how you can do it also, but why it works, why it gets results. Again, if we know why something works, then we can adapt to any given scenario. Different boards, different surf spots, different conditions. We’ll have it covered.
