(Re)Learning Paddling Basics with Todd Bradley

Evan created StandUpPaddleSurf.net way back in the beginning of the modern SUP revival...what? Three years ago? He was in early, has documented all the changes and is one of the best resources around.

Since I am (re)learning how to paddle, I checked out his blog/website and found three great Todd Bradley tutorials that go hand in hand with my earlier post about Dave Kalama's teaching. There is a lot of good, basic info for beginner's and those who have been practicing for a while too.

When I started SUP paddling and surfing in August 2007, there wasn't a lot of information around about "how to" stuff. Now there's a lot so...gotta keep up. It doesn't hurt to revisit our technique, make improvements and continue to grow. As Bob Dylan sang..."He not busy being born, is busy dying."

  1. I found these a while ago and as you say they are top draw! I often see SUP riders out there who have no idea and I pass on a couple Todd's tips and what a difference it makes. Good stuff!
