Ginni Callahan was a great hit among local paddlers when she came to Sydney in March to run her own brand of discovery based paddling instruction courses, in conjunction with Rob Mercer's Balanced Boater.
She's back for a week in early February, this time with her instructor buddy Axel Schoevers in tow, to run a series of full day & twilight sessions in & around the harbour.
Her program is outlined below:
Tuesday 8 Feb - 6.00pm - 8.00pm Evening Session - $60/person
Forward stroke correction and video analysis
Evening Session with video review and dinner at Watsons Bay Hotel.
Wednesday 9th Feb - 8am - 3pm - $120/person
Greenland Skills Day
Take the day off and spend it refining your Greenland paddling and rolling skills with Ginni and Axel. During the day the group will be split to allow paddlers with different interests and experience levels to work on appropriate aspects of their technique.
Thursday 10th Feb - 6.00pm - 8.00pm - $60/person
Balance, Edging & Bracing
A wet and fun class, we use games to develop balance in the core of the body. After this, edging improves without aid of the paddle, which frees the paddler to use the blade more efficiently. Of course when the point of balance is exceeded, a nice recovery brace saves a dunking. Supporting braces will also be covered—a way to hold a confident edge in choppy water or push that edge a little higher, or to stay upright in surf.
Saturday 12th Feb - 8am - 3pm - $120/person
Greenland Skills Day
For those who can't take the day off on Wednesday - During the day the group will be split to allow paddlers with different interests and experience levels to work on appropriate aspects of their technique.
Ginni's sessions were completely booked out last year, and most of the places available have been snapped up by those who took part previously, however a few remain in each time-slot if you're looking for a different slant on your paddling skills development.
