Playboater Troubleshooter – Episode 3 – Hole Movement Basics

The Playboater Troubleshooter Series is brought to you by Wave Sport Kayaks and H2o Dreams LLC.

This new series looks to tackle the freestyle discipline in the same approach as Chris did in the Whitewater Troubleshooter series, through typical pitfalls, as well as a description of why the physics work, not just how.

In this episode Chris Wing talks about the importance of learning in holes before waves to prevent avoidance mentalities and how our previous positions of power translates to powerful movement in holes. This is a great building block for any paddler even if your end goal isn’t to play, as it is only a matter of time before you find yourself in one.

Playboater Troubleshooter – Episode 4 – Wave Movement Basics

The Playboater Troubleshooter Series is brought to you by Wave Sport Kayaks and H2o Dreams LLC.

This new series looks to tackle the freestyle discipline in the same approach as Chris did in the Whitewater Troubleshooter series, through typical pitfalls, as well as a description of why the physics work, not just how.

In this episode Chris Wing gives you the basics of how the hull interacts when it starts to plane out and how the previous lesson still relates to movement on waves. Waves typically are the most sought after and least intimidating features to play on, but also the least understood.
