Always be aware of your center point and stance. These are your keys to balance and paddling speed.
1 // Stand at the center of the length of the board, fore and aft. The handle is an excellent reference point.
2 // Place your feet approximately shoulder-width apart in a comfortable and stable position.
3 // As in all sports, bend your knees slightly.
4 // In the stance position, make sure your feet are parallel to your shoulders and one foot is slight back (1 to 1 1/2” back)
from the other. This will give you stability and core balance.
- Finding your center point and having the correct stance will enable you to have more stability, paddle speed and less time in the water.
