Paddle Masters Class with Johhny O'Hara

Join us on Monday, July 11th for a paddle master class with professional standup paddler Johnny O'Hara. This class is designed to take your paddling to the next level. It will help you embark on longer paddle journeys, handle rougher conditions, and get to your paddling destination faster and with less effort. Just some of the topics that will be covered are: 

  • Specific, targeted muscle warm-up and conditioning to help you stay in peak paddling shape
  • Detailed stroke mechanics, including proper body positioning for maximum efficiency and injury-free paddling
  • How to change your stroke according to a variety of wind conditions including head-, cross-, and tail winds
  • Board agility, including varying foot placements and moving while on the board

These are just some of the techniques that Johnny will teach you during this 90 minute paddle class! 

Johnny was born and raised around the waters of the North Shore. He began standup paddleboarding in 2011, and since first starting has competed in races at the regional, national, and even international level. He has been on the podium at such headlining events as Battle of the Paddle, Carolina Cup, and WPA Championships. He has been featured on Distressed Mullet and in Standup Journal (New England issue!) and teaches race and technique clinics throughout the country.
