Kayak Clinics by Brent ReitzKAYAK FORWARD STROKE CLINIC - JUNE 10, HALF MOON BAY, CA
All paddlers can improve upon their Forward Stroke, but adventure racers
really benefit from a little coaching and practice! The popular Forward
Stoke Clinic is taught by Brent Reitz, past national Wildwater and
marathon champion, and veteran of the U.S. Olympic sprint kayak program.
It is the premiere clinic that brings the techniques of the elite
Olympic kayaker to the recreational racer! In Brent's words, "The
forward stroke is the most used, but least taught, and perhaps most
poorly understood stroke in kayaking". Paddle more efficiently, avoid
injury, and avoid bad habits that cause further injury. Learn proper
technique from the very beginning, or tune-up your skills to gain more
power per stroke!"
Brent will give his Kayak Forward Stoke clinic on June 10 at California
Canoe & Kayak in Half Moon Bay, and again on July 15 on the Oakland
Estuary. Past participants include many top regional kayak racers, as
well as aspiring adventure race team members. We video your stroke
throughout the clinic, and review the tape during the class for analysis
and feedback. If you have never seen yourself paddling on video, this is
one of the best ways to improve your forward stroke! Brent will blow
your mind with his precise but gentle critique.
