Multisport Tips

Intro to Multi-sport, Wing Paddle Lessons and More

Want to learn the basic skills you'll need to do your first multi-sport race? Need to make sure your paddling technique is developing on track? Book in with Richard himself for a session on the lake. Covers getting in and out of the boat, boat set-up, correct seating position, paddle-handling skills, balance techniques, steering techniques.

Richard assesses your performance on the water, then skilfully taylors the programme to your particular needs.

One-on-one coaching with Richard on the lake:
Students:$45.00 an hour
Adults: $75.00 an hour 

A lower hourly rate can be arranged when more than one paddler requires instruction at the same time.
