SUP Upwinding - Vid
« on: December 12, 2016, 08:00:07 AM »
With all the downwinding Vids online, I thought it was time we started focussing on upwinding.. ;).. So here is my first 1 minute upwinding vid on the SIC Bullet 14v1 TWC.

This was inspired by one of my paddle buddies here, who said to me, "I hate downwinding, and am going to organise an upwind race... just for so I can beat all of you downwinding nutters"

Looks like you're got yourself a real good workout going against the wind. Thanks for sharing your video.

The wind is a good training partner.  That is what I was told.

Ya think it's the next big thing?

I like the angle of the mount you are using.  By stabilization, do you mean you are using a gimbal?  Is it waterproof? 
Where did you get this setup?
More information please!

Well, yeah. Great workout, great training, great mount, and perspective but I just think of this.

This brilliant off-shore! Upwind is such a crucial aspect of paddling and the technic involved is a difficult skill to master. I need to see more paddling
against the bumps though, this is where it really gets interesting.

You should have told me you're doing that, I had a prefect 5 mile upwind
today (on my way back from a downwind session). I could have had some
footage to show (with bumps and all) ;)

Crazy as it seems - we do that a lot here.  2 miles straight upwind and 2 miles DW.  Really helps with pull strength and cardio conditioning especially when there are whitecaps.  Do it until you get tired right out - and both your flat water speed will benefit - and your DW balance skills as well.  Your endurance will improve dramatically and you will not fatigue like before.  Really helps a lot actually - and your technique gets better and better.  Go narrower and narrower as well.   ;)

Robert, This is a Sail Systems Pro 3rd Person View Lite https://www.sailvideosystem.com/collections/all-products/products/3rdpersonview-lite, with a set up that I have worked out over the last few years, coupled with a GoPro Hero 5 using the SuperView Setting and with Image Stabilisation switched on, that changes the FOV back to Wide. I'm actually very impressed how well this works out compared to the GoPro 4 Black without the image stabilisation. I did not do any post production stabilisation..

Normally I'd just cut this upwind footage out, but when I was skimming through, I saw this and thought... Wow.. That's pretty amazing... I have two downwinding vids shot on same day I am working on.. Here are some stills..

But seriously... more upwind vids please...  ;D

Thank you for the link, that's a cool mount and the image stabilization is pretty good. 
I'm still waiting for a waterproof gimbal, does anyone know if one is available?

Great video and visibility shirt. I do a lot of upwind in order to downwind, sometimes several times in a session. Some tips on upwind that I've learned over the years..
-super short quick strokes - longer your paddle is in the water you're being pushed by the wind
-if super strong (over 20kts) get low - kneeling is common but still a sail. Sitting kayak style using single blade or full paddle kayak style, or prone. Helps save those shoulders and keep you in training if you brake/lose a paddle.

My favorite workout...1 hour pounding against the wind.....for a 5 minute downwind run. I find that if I get my stroke cadence to match the chop and with the focus that is required for me to stay upright in it I can get so zoned out I lose track of time.....suddenly find myself far further out than planned.
