The Art of Downwinding Boot Camp

April 28, 2017 @ 11:00 am - April 30, 2017 @ 5:00 pm


WHO: This will be a 3 day camp led by Shanna Upton, designed to teach intermediate to experienced paddlers the Art of Downwinding in a safe and fun environment.

WHAT: This is the perfect opportunity to build your confidence on the water, improve your skills and take your downwind paddling to the next level. When we’re on the Bay we will be focusing on reading the water, catching bumps, riding long glides, connecting sets and most importantly having fun. We’ll go over the importance of safety both on and off the water. We’ll also be spending time on the beach stretching and working on some fun land drills.

The adventure doesn’t stop when we put our paddles down. We will be staying at a beautiful house, nestled in the heart of West Marin and exploring hidden treasures of Point Reyes National Seashore. I’m fortunate enough to call this magical place my home and I can’t wait to share it with you!!

What’s Included:
Downwind coaching on Tomales Bay
Snacks & Water
Video Analysis of your Paddling Technique
Hiking and all things Adventurous with a Local Knowledgeable Guide

WHERE: Tomales Bay, CA

WHEN: On Day 1 (Friday 04/28) we will meet at 11.00 AM at Toby’s Feed Barn in Point Reyes Station (there’s coffee, pastries and snacks).
