Get your head straight! Training Paddle Mindset by Dave Kalama

This is part of the QuickBlade QuickTips series by QuickBlade Paddles and the Distressed Mullet.

In this episode, Dave Kalama talks about going out for an exercise paddle. Start out 50-60% energy and 100% technique. From the first stroke that you concentrate on technique, you will be setting your technique from the get go and make the rest of the paddle more efficient.
