Slow the video down on your settings right lower corner of your screen.

Catch is very important in your stroke, on how the Body,shoulder and the lower arm getting that blade in the water (forearm wet) guided by the strong/stiff upper arm on pressure (soft wrist up and downward motion).

Get out there in your OC1 or V1. It's the only way to learn "Feeling" connecting yourself to the paddle, to your boat- gliding in the water.


1. of the how solid Catch/pressure of the Blade in front
2. of when to release that pressure
3. when/where/how to exit out your lower hand and blade
4. of how far-glide did that stroke send that boat forward and when to stick that blade again maximizing that glide per stroke.
5. when to bring stroke up and when to slow it down catching that bump
6. when your falling off the wave and when your nose is downward- bring that rate up to glide/slide on that wave
7. and feeling each others effort in OC6- smoothness and precision in the water

Love the video of Kevin and Tupuria Clinic!  Thanks for sharing!  By any chance was there a video of them talking about the V1 stroke or any video of Kevin C-J sharing his technique?  Mahalo!

This winter is the time to build your foundation to carry over to the next Season. " It's all time in the water" But bring it to another level. Use this as a guide to your training regimen, get a binder and plastic laminate sleeves in staple/Office Depot (Write down your specific modified numbers on the Plastic) and modify the numbers to your specific time,days,weeks- to coincide with your target Race in the month to come. M-W-F-S or T-Th-F-S make sure you set a day to recover. Cross Train if water time is impossible that day. Manage your nutrition well and recovery. Salt Tabs/electrolytes and protein is a must. Drink plenty of water.

Keep a log book to track down your progress every week as you stretch your training intervals and endurance time.

I'll see you in the water soon. Good Luck Marina!!!
