Need a little nudge to go the distance? Join this socially-distanced, accelerated paced group for some guidance on going the distance. Build up your paddling fitness, get more comfortable in a variety of conditions, and become a faster and stronger paddler!
This series will not include skill/lessons. Your coach will not be paddling at arms length, paddlers must have open water experience, be able to remount their board quickly and unassisted in deep water, as you are responsible for your own safety on and in the water.
