outrigger coaching education

teaching paddling skills

Here is a quick check list of technical elements to look for in outrigger technique

It is very, very important to remember that all paddlers should go through stages of learning governed by their flexibility, range of motion, core strength/stability, balance, aerobic fitness and strength.  As a paddler gains experience, fitness and technical skills they can move to more advanced techniques.

Expecting a new paddler to use a technique that has demands beyond their abilities may result in injuries or limit their understanding of the basics involved in the skills, thus limiting them later in their development.
