Episode 41 - Do You Get A Tight Lower Back When Paddling?

November 30, 2016

Paddling is a pretty physically demanding sport, especially when you start to get into the training and racing side of things. As a beginner, your body goes through a period of physical adaptation that is to be expected. As you start to become a bit more seasoned however you would assume that all the pain and stiffness you feel should subside as you become more "paddle fit".

In this episode, I talk about battling that annoying lower back pain that you might get from time to time. Getting a stiff and sore back has been something I have been dealing with for the last couple months now, but after a bit of a break-through session this morning I think I might have figured my issues out. 

I hope you enjoy this episode, and apologies if I ramble on too much about anatomy. 

Have a great day and an even better weekend. 

Regards

Episode 40 - Just Relax Bro

November 24, 2016

Kitesurfing is known for being an extreme " Adventure" sport which, I have to admit it definitely can be depending on which discipline you head down. There is, however, no more daunting task than trying to learn how to kite in ones kitesurfing career. I mean you can go and mega loop at big bay all day, which is intense but I bet that you were more scared / intimidated about learning to fly a big kite for the first time over doing hectic loops.

In this episode, I talk about one fault I see all too often, being too tense. The one thing I am always trying to get across to my students when we go through lessons is how your body language can influence the kite, and how nice relaxed and fluid motion will help you master your kite flying abilities faster and with a lot fewer dramas.

I hope you enjoy this episode. It's short sharp and to the point.

Have a great weekend!

Regards
Brayden
