Gorge 2018

I will be at the Gorge Downwind Champs festival of paddling for downwind surf clinics July 16, 17, 19, 2018. 

Want to improve your surfing skills?

While its true that surfing skills take years to build, attending a clinic is a short cut to getting you where you want to be. 

Build on your skill set so you can race smarter, faster, and have more fun. You’ll get better at deciding when to power up and when to relax. You’ll start to feel the waves more, and learn to judge what to go after. We will spend time talking about what to look for, and do a downwind run so you can feel and see it yourself.

We’ll break down the skill set you need as a paddler, especially focusing on the skills you need to surf. You’ll go home with new training ideas to add to your training program so you can continue to build your ability in your own training sessions.

Here are the clinic details:

I will be running clinics Monday July 16, Tuesday July 17, and Thursday July 19, 2018. (If the race is held Thursday, then the clinic will run Friday)

The cost will be $60 per person, for a maximum of six people. I keep the groups small, so you get more out of the experience. I will run a clinic with as few as four people, but not less than four.

  • We will use the festival shuttles to do the downwind run together.
  • I cannot provide canoes
  • You must have experience and be able to confidently right your canoe in the event of a huli.
  • This is not a clinic for beginners.

Clinic will take place in the afternoon, however, times will need to be a little bit flexible so we can get the most out of the wind.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
