Revolutionary Week – Freestyle / Freeride

“The revolution is not an apple that falls when it is ripe. You have to make it fall” – Che Guevara

Loop Sort

And so it is with freestyle. It is all about revolutions and we can not become a freestyle paddler by waiting for it to happen. We have to make it happen. Understanding how to make it happen is the big trick. If you can crack the big trick, all the others are within your grasp.

 

With a week of intensive training we will set you on the path to freestyle and freeride enlightenment. The week will be based 3 core areas:

 

1 – Time spent at park and play sites practising and learning about basic freestyle moves or helping you develop more advanced moves if you are ready. The site in Sort has been the venue for several international freestyle competitions and also has plenty of other training features specifically designed to allow for progression.

2 – An equal amount of time will be spent running sections of the Riu Noguera Pallaresa in playboats looking for those other moves. This is a real river with real features that are real fun. Splats, wave wheels and kickflips may all be well within your grasp. Learning downriver moves will help you improve your timing for throwing all moves.

3 – This is where Che Guevara’s wise words come in. We’ll help you learn how to train appropriately. Simply throwing yourself at it won’t make the difference, but getting fitter and conditioning yourself with specific self-coached goals in mind will help you get there.

That’s how we’ll make you into a free styling free riding freedom fighter.
