Reverse Paddle Turn

Stand up paddle board technique guru Sam Ross demonstrates the reverse paddle turn, a great way of turning your paddle board without moving the feet or effecting the trim of the board. There’s no need to change your hands or paddle on to a different side. It’s quick, efficient and a good way of controlling speed.

From a normal paddling position, bring the paddle out in front of you and the top hand into your hip. Rotate your upper body, shoulders and hips to bring the blade over the nose of the board with the logo facing towards the tail.

Slice the blade into the water and start pushing water towards the nose.
