Tim’s coaching philosophy is to focus heavily on technique development at all levels from beginners to international standard paddlers. Tim regularly studies, and gets feedback on, the current techniques of Olympic level paddlers and developments in technique (and conditioning) from their coaches. The belief being that if you develop an efficient technique it can make a far greater difference than conditioning alone. Anyone can get fit and strong, but not everyone can develop class. And if you don’t have class “you’ll never go really fast”.

Whether flat water, river paddling or ocean paddling, one-on-one sessions or group bookings We Paddle have the experience and the training.
