      Afternoon paddle with nice conditions on the water!
      Asked a friend who lives at the channel to take a short video ... good help to see yourself. But looks a bit stiff for me and my back should be straight, not round. Do you have any tips? Would appreciate any advise! Thanks

      Just paddling... :-)

      Today I tested in Nidau different 14' Race Boards - about 6 boards - to get a feeling if I can manage more narrow boards. I want to go for a faster hardboard. I tried two Jimmy Lewis - U-Boat and another one , a Mistral Vortex 24', one Falcon 24', two Infinity - one with 24' and one with even 23' ... and not one threw me off!!! I did not feel very unsafe (there were only very small waves), but also not really comfortable. I could paddle, but my legs were kind of stiff and I paddled may be on max. 70% power ... not wanting to go for a swim in the not any more warm water. It was a really good experience ... they told me if you go for a new board you should not fall into the water but also not feel comfortable, otherwise it will be boring soon. Based on this experience, I finally decided to take a very good offer (I had already before from somewhere else - I told them before) of a second-hand SIC X14 Pro Lite with 24'' width. I have to wait a few weeks and then it will be even colder, but in autumn you will get the best offers. May be I will should start with the first rides with my old swim neopren-suit!? Let's see, I am really looking forward to it!

      Paddling in autumn is great! ... working always on improving technique. Got much more stabilized hip and better complete movement and made a new personal high speed on real flat water. Also much easier to hold a relatively (for me) high speed. Enjoy it a lot!

      Today, I booked for the first time a private lesson with an experienced SUP-Racer. It is really helpful and I can recommend to do this. There are some mistakes I thought I might do them and others I never thought of. And the most surprising recommendation I got, was to spend a lot of time walking for and backwards over the board. His young SUP paddlers would train this a lot, again and again until they nearly jump over it and it would make them much faster than others as the gained stability allows a much more efficient paddling style and with that speed. I also learned that I need to keep my back more straight and move my full upper body down with all its power onto the paddle ... and a few other things. I will try to improve and come back for sure. It is much more fun and you enjoy when you improve your style. ... and all this on a beautiful lake with an unbeleivable view on 4000m mountains covered with snow!

      Added on Sun, 10 Sep 2017 20:37:24 +0000

      The Siren Ray 12.6 inflatable is after some usage a quite stable and for this size a really fast board - I can keep it for an hour at 7.5 km/h and still have potential with improving my technique. It is really fun to ride, accelerates and glides very well. I even tried it in the waves of Denmarks Northeast coast and even side waves can be managed after some practise. It is also quite light to carry and it comes with a very good 2-way pump. I became kind of "One" with the board and wouldn't want to change it - I own it since about 2 years . Besides, have since one month a Siren 14' 27.5'' Wahoo hardboard.

      My first SUP race ever! There is a round of 5.1 km that everyone can paddle on his own (June - August) equipped with Garmin GPS watch. It is organized every year. It went quite well, the last third of the distance I got quite a bit tired. I finished in the ranking around 50 - so far >800 Paddlers are in the ranking. It was a great experience ... next time a normal race with everyone starting togehter ... and probably even more Motivation and fun. Here the link to the event, if you are interested: https://sunsetshop.ch/suprace/

      I saw in some more YouTube videos how to enter the paddle faster and the same time smoother into the water and with that getting a much better flow of the whole movement. The paddle dives in much better now, is pushed deep in the water, and driven by main body muscles (back, shoulders, abdominals/hip). It goes so much better and let's the board keep on a higher speed much easier. It is great to experience how much you can improve by training and trying to improve technique. ... but I guess still a lot of potential ... also found a good location in Thun, where I will take a private lesson with a really experienced paddler ... I am sure it is worth it! But anyway worth is to watch some videos ... e.g. one of the best on YouTube called "SUP improved paddling technique" 4 min. and great learning, I watched it already many times!
