Downwinding and Ocean Skills
Downwinding and Ocean paddling can be some of the most fun but also some of the most demanding of all the Stand Up Paddleboard disciplines. Unifying paddling and surfing skills the SUP’er takes full advantage of the strong winds, swell, bumps and runners on this one way adrenalin fuelled journey.
This week long holiday will give you time to get some real ocean experience, so that you can start to take your SUP skills to the next level with confidence and with an emphasis on safety and planning. If you think that downwinding is simply paddling as hard as you can with the wind behind you then think again, there is a lot of skill to catching bumps and riding swell.
On many of our trips we have been fortunate to encounter dolphins and other marine creatures; downwinding really is like no other water sport you will experience. After you have completed your first run you will be itching to get back out on the ocean to experience more!
