About Mastery Level 2

Learn how to enhance power in your sprint paddle, where to position yourself to catch a wave, when to time your paddle, and where your board's turning sweet spot is. In this extra extended weekend, you’ll get a deep dive analysis of your own sprint paddling stroke on video, ride the longest wave in your life so you can dial in your board's sweet spot, and learn what to look for in a wave for positioning and timing your paddle. In addition, apply your new learning directly to the ocean when we go surf at a few of the local breaks. SEE THE FUN ->
