All filled up for this season
A unique opportunity for those who use the Greenland paddle
Very Limited Space available
The Greenland Paddle Mastery Tour
For the very first time, you’ll be guided and supported by 15 lessons of coaching and mentoring...
...With the unique 3 pillars that are needed for true kayak mastery.
Moving with your kayak
This is where we make sure you are moving well with your kayak. In other words kayaking is not some awkward thing. You move your body naturally, like moving your pelvis, and the kayak responds correctly. It’s what makes kayaking feel as natural as walking.
Keep your body strong
This is where we remove all the weak links. Like bending the arms when they don’t need to bend. Or using too much shoulders and back when you could be using your pelvis.
Multiply your effectiveness with technique
Most people completely ignore the first 2 pillars and just show you techniques. It’s like putting jet fuel in a broken engine. You don’t go far. On the other hand, when you have the first two pillars, adding that jet fuel takes your skills to the stratosphere. Fast.
it's for you if:
We have these dates available.
You are purchasing 15 lessons.
Only the lessons you show up for count as the ones you purchased…but I recommend you come to as many as you can, as they will be building on each other.
Lessons expire on April 30th 2023.
We’re only taking 5 people so everyone gets a lot of one on one support.
Each lesson includes a practice session, and also some paddling for fun.
So you get to develop your skills in a natural and enjoyable way. We’ll be practicing “stay in the kayak” skills only. If you want to practice the wet exit and re-entry, I recommend you contact Yves from GoKayak. https://gokayak.ca/
Baines Channel offers a unique opportunity.
Because of the currents around these islands, we have an opportunity to practice and develop confidence in the kind of conditions you could experience (and want to be prepared for) on a longer expedition…
In a safe setting just a few minutes from home.
Here's a sample of the skills you can expect to have after the 15 lessons.
Avoid capsizing in waves
Stay in control in currents
Efficient forward stroke
Advanced turning strokes
Balance brace (optional)
About Your Teacher
I started kayaking with a dream to explore the beautiful Gulf Islands. After a few scary crossings I realized I was far from having the skills to keep myself safe. I was practicing daily but not improving fast enough. The day I discovered the Greenland paddle and the traditional techniques was a life changer for me. I could not believe that most people are not using this timeless approach. Even without anyone teaching me I was rolling forward and back within a few months. And soon I could do what most paddlers can’t. After 20 years of using the Greenland paddle exclusively, and sharing the techniques for others for 15 years, I have learned a lot about how to teach these skills to help people get quick results.
My favorite thing to do is helping paddlers like you go on life changing trips.
