SUP Clinic Experience
« on: July 19, 2020, 01:50:57 PM »
A week or so back, I signed up to participate in a SUP clinic hosted by Seychelle Webster (2019 APP World Tour Racing Champion). The clinic was today Sun 7/19 and was supposed to be limited to 8 paddlers, but as it turned out, I was the only one who actually showed up. Seychelle still went thru with the session and I ended up getting a private lesson. I've watched a slew of videos, but on-the-water, one-on-one instruction with an elite paddler/athlete was so much more valuable. She was totally patient with me and went to great length to explain, demonstrate, and have me get a "feel" for what she was talking about. I felt like she was genuinely interested in seeing me leave with improved technique. Such a great experience, such a great person, really happy it turned out the way it did.

And by the way, the SUP Connect voting is still going on. There's several US east coast, west coast and Hawaiian candidates ... so support your local pro (you can guess who I voted for).

Wow - your one lucky guy. I'm sure you'll remember that experience for some time! BTW, her technique is nearly flawless so you were learning from one of the best!
