#MOCKEMAXIMS – Never sacrifice stability for speed.
One of the biggest mistakes made by aspiring paddlers is buying a paddling craft (Surfski or Kayak) that is too unstable for their ability. In over ten years of coaching and teaching at our Surfski School in Fish Hoek; as well as 20 years of competitive paddling, it is probably the most common mistake that I see new and experienced paddlers making. I have made the same mistake myself.
In an effort to be as competitive as possible you obviously select a faster and less stable craft, a few notches above your ability level. Your reason is that you can ignore stability and improve regardless of being unstable. It’s a faster boat, so you’ll paddle faster.”
