We started with Panama Paddle Center 6 months ago, an idea to promote all paddle sports in Panama. We have been overwhelmed with all’s participation
We have been able to scout amazing kayak fishing locations in Panama and guide local and international fishermen on very successful kayak fishing adventures.
We are striving to develop Surf ski(open ocean ) Paddling and K1 and K2 racing in 2014
SUP is one of the fastest growing paddle sports in the world . In Panama we see a few SUP’s but the sport is still in its infancy with SUP racers and surfers.
Panama Paddle Center trains with a mythology of experience. It is about the heart, not just the action , it is about understanding SUP, the board, the water, the waves .
Last Weekend I watched Mike Young teach 4 friends and my kids for 4 hours without taking a break or breath, he has the passion to teach, but teach correctly and if you dont like it, go get someone else teach you.
Joshua just recently started surfing , he is still a beginner and loves the ocean and sports in general.
Mike took Joshua through the various steps of paddling the board in a prone position , (yes that is not just jumping on the board and starting to paddle). He had to learn to sit,turn the board and paddle in a prone position before moving to standing on the SUP, this is done for control of the board and safety.
The paddle technique and how to hold the paddle was demonstrated.
How to go from kneeling to standing and at last they went paddling around Puerto Bello with Joshua in full control of his SUP and Mike watching close by.
SUP training is important for safety and enjoyment as well as technique
Lessons can be booked at Panama Paddle Center, they are done on various beaches, from Vera Cruz , beaches around Coronado and on the Caribbean at Scuba Puerto Bello.
We have pro – staff in our store to give you the best advice and training
