Friday, September 14, 2012 from 4:00 PM to 5:30 PM (EDT)
Enjoy 1-hour clinic featuring training tips and advice from one of the world's best! Watermans Applied Science's and SUP ATX welcome Naish Team Rider and international paddling champion Chuck Patterson (Chuckpattersonsports.com) who will be on hand ready to share the secrets of their success with you. Chuck is one of the best paddlers in the SUP World and ready to draw from a solid racing, touring and surfing background to help take your paddling to the next level. The Clinic will take place at the SUP ATX store in Austin. After the clinic, join others for a fun social paddle down Lady Bird Lake. Bring your own board if you plan on paddling, there may be a limited number of boards available from SUP ATX but they will go fast and are on a first come first serve basis. The focus of this event will be learning techniques, safety and how to train smart on and off the water.
SUPATX will be hosting their annual sale that day so this might be the time take advantage of an awesome deal on a new or used SUP...
After the clinic there will be an informal fun social paddle with friends (we're trying to get more civilized). Take this opportunity to explore Lady Bird Lake with Chuck and others. When your done with the paddle come in and enjoy an ice cold Kona Longboard Lager and food from Wahoo's Fish Tacos back at the SUP ATX shop and hang for the pre-registration party in celebration of the Paddle for Humanity 2012.
When & Where
SUPATX and Lahui Kai Paddle Boards
started as grass roots paddling event back in 2009 as a way to bring the paddling community together in support of a common cause. Since that time the race has grown to become the largest national paddling series and has raised thousands of dollars for its non- profit partners. For 2012, the Paddle for Humanity is expanding to five events, including Dana Point, Deerfield Beach FL, Washington DC , Lake Tahoe CA and Austin Texas .
Community has always been the keystone of the PFH and the success of the series can be measured by the ability to bring the paddling community together to raise awareness and funds for causes we believe in. To this end, the PFH will be opening the series to traditional paddleboard, Stand Up Paddling (SUP), Outrigger Canoes, OC-1, OC-2, Kayaking, rec and specialty regional divisions.
