Weekend Reflection/Report

Waka - Ama Training w Tupuria King on Saturday

Training was good, as in pretty positive. I learnt some other ‘efficient’ ways insert you paddle in the water.
* Rotation/Leaning, etc.
* Elbow to Torso
* How to position my top hand.
& many more. I really appreciated how Tupuria King gave taught us ‘portions’ of how he would paddle.

The paddle & pause circuit was fine, as well as challenging, I guess I need to adapt. On our Waka, in seat one was Victoria & when we paused, we would just skim the top of the water, which was interesting and helpful. Overall training was great!
This Waka Workshop was held at Tamaki Outrigger Canoe Club!
