Paddle into Fitness training was amazing. Loved San Diego and the people that I met in the SUP community. If you love getting on the water, going to any SUP event is highly recommended, just to meet new people is wroth it!
We trained on the water as well as on land. Yoga on the board, included teaching a beginner Gentle wave flow and advanced Vinyasa style Nautical flow.
Portions on land can be expected to learn the basics of the paddle and board, in a Paddle 101 class. From there we take the lesson on the board and apply techniques to improve paddle stroke, turning and stopping the board.
My last day of training was SUP Fitness portion, including Advanced SUP and SUP race workshops. On land advanced stroke drills that helps on the water techniques. More turns to apply during races or relays. Drafting and more drills that would prep for SUP races. Last anchoring down and co teaching Swell sets of the paddle fit exercise.
Life on the water so far this season has been off to a good start. San Diego was on the horizon for SUP yoga & paddle fit training. Before leaving I found my self as an ambassador for Evolve paddle boards. Traveling with the board was so easy. The details on the board are amazing, everything about it is thoughtful design from fin placement, bag, bungee cord and the top deck being super soft.
The travel bag fit everything I needed for a full week on the water. No problems getting around from the airport and all the places during the week. On the water loved the board, great for all the drills, techniques and yes even yoga! Amazing fun board, check out the pics!
Here are the details:
Inflatable Yoga SUP – 10’6″ x 33″ comes with travel backpack/wheel bag, pump, 3 piece travel paddle and patch kit
Quick video on using the pump, inflating the board while meeting a new friend. Blowing up a board is the ultimate conversation starter. While getting ready for the water, a new friend comes over and we talk boards, equipment and we stay in contact!
As an Evolve Ambassador if you are interested to find out more about the boards they offer, please send me a note. I would be happy to answer questions about what kind of board is right for you, as well as a paddle.
