Open all

PaddleFit Pro Coaches Victoria Stuart and Helen Blair have designed this weekly training session at Okahu Bay for women of all ages who have been SUP racing for a while, or who paddle recreationally but want more. (The group will be split according to ability level)

Included is a customised online training plan (with an app!) that will help prepare you for both the weekly short-course SUP racing that starts in November with City Surf Series and Beach Series, as well as longer distance regional races - starting with the Cambridge to Hamilton paddle race (11km or 23km) on 17 Sept!

Occasionally we're hoping to relocate the session to Orewa if the surf's looking good (all round/surf sups will be provided if needed).

If you're up for a challenge, looking for a new form of outdoor fitness, or just want to paddle regularly with a great bunch of women, then Race Pod is for you.

Program is 13 weeks (Week 3 is a rest week due to Cam2Ham race). We'll be meeting for breakfast TRUE food and yoga after the first training session to talk over your training plans.

Cost is $200 for the 12-weeks or a 6-class concession card $120.

Location: Meet at The Landing - on the grass by the public jetty and boatramp. Please make sure you park your car in a free car park (check the signs).

Fun is guaranteed.

Pre-requisite to Race Pod is at least one block of PaddleFit Tech classes (it's important for injury prevention not to start loading until you've got the right technique). Pre-req can be waived if you have advanced paddling skills. For more info on Tech I or II classes, please contact Victoria 021 644 129.

Varied, exciting and proven courses, a great race director and awesome televised media coverage.
