Paddling Technique Sessions Perth

Introductory One on One

In this initial session Ramon will spend 90+ minutes explaining and demonstrating the correct paddling technique using a variety of mediums from on water, paddling ergometer, video and land based exercises to help you grasp the concept of being able to paddle faster and more efficiently. Your paddle will be measured up to ensure you place your hands at the correct spacing and advice provided to the most appropriate paddle length and seating position within your craft. You will also be videoed in order for Ramon to provide technical advice and correction. You will be given a copy of your video either by email or by downloading onto your device at the end of the session.


Individual - $160.00 | Group of 2 - $100pp | Group of 3 - $80pp | Group of 4 - $70pp. For groups of 5 and above please email for a quote.

Other Coaching Services

Special Packages

Whilst Ramon will provide a lot of great information in one session and improvements can be made just by correct paddle and boat set up and small changes to technique, the reality is many paddlers come looking for stroke correction with a firmly embedded stroke pattern. This might be from just a few months of paddling or many years. As a consequence any coach looking to make consistent long lasting changes to any movement pattern needs to break down the neural pathway and help the brain relearn new more effective patterns. This needs to be done over a number of sessions over a relatively short period of time, therefore it is highly recommended that any paddler looking to make massive improvements for the long haul look at a minimum of 5 sessions. Ramon uses his experience in coaching and sports science to make these changes.


5 sessions – Individual - $440 | Group of 2 - $300pp | Group of 3 - $260 | Group of 4 - $220. For groups of 5 and above please email for a quote.
