Video Transcript:

Hi. I’m Candace Appleby from San Clemente, California. I’m a professional ocean athlete and four-time VOP champion. I also coached the performance paddling competition team with some of the best young paddlers in the country and I’m here today to talk to you about some training tips that will help take your paddling to the next level. So my first tip is move your feet make sure you’re comfortable moving around on your board because anything can happen when you’re out on a race going around a buoy. So make sure you’re not glued to the board because you want to be able to move around and chaos occurs practice cross stepping learn how to shuffle you can even practice on the sidewalk. My second tip for you is practice bracing. The bracing stroke is something that we often do unconsciously. You need to practice it consciously and it’s as simple as splashing the water. It helps you when you’re going around big turns and you’re about to fall. When going in and out of the surf, it helps get you get out of situations that you might otherwise be in the water. So make sure you practice bracing and do it consciously. Tip number three is practice your starts. Starts of races are often where the biggest mistakes are made so make sure you have a lot of practice. There are various types of starts. There is a Beach start where you’re running shoreline starts and water starts. Make sure to always assess the situation and check out the shoreline before you’re about to start and give it lots of practice. When I’m training, I like to warm up by doing a few beach starts a few shoreline starts and a few water starts and there are a lot of fun. We want to thank Candice for sharing her three tips the only way to get better is to work hard and go practice these tips so now let’s get on the water and go have some fun.
