Paddling a following sea

This is a bit off track & does feature ski champ Clint Robinson paddling a 24ft Epic ski, but it's worth checking out for the technical aspects of how he catches the waves he's riding. These are the sorts of conditions thrown up around Sydney most afternoons if you're paddling north-south, & show what's possible if you're good enough. Click HERE to see the clip, shot beautifully by a dude called Rambo, a pioneer paddling videographer from Mooloolaba, of Clint Robinson paddling in the Perth Doctor Surfski World Cup race. I spotted it on surfski.info - a great site for ocean racing info. This is the sort of stuff my Rapier 20 loves, it's just the paddler holding it back.....

  1. Pretty to watch. Thanks for posting the clip. I have access to all the great surf clubs in Newcastle and was a member for 12 years of one of them. It would be a good idea to approach a ski coach to get some training or at least forward stroke correction happening.
