Before we get to the actual ‘pocket coaching’ part of this series, I wanted to introduce our coach first, Todd Bradley. Todd is co-founder of C4 Waterman and has over 40 years of ocean experience. He has done over 50 Molokai crossings and won the SUP division in the 2005 Quiksilver Molokai to Oahu race. Aside from stand up paddling, Todd also competes in other paddling sports such as OC1 and OC6, of which he has also won several championships. Todd has also competed in other forms of watersports including outrigger sailing canoes, catamaran racing, surfing and open ocean paddleboard racing.
In this video, Todd shows us how he applies some of the paddling techniques he taught us during this session. Check out the video:
