Mark Malaki-Williams

Ocean Blue were fortunate enough to receive a paddling clinic from 2018 Worlds Elite Paddler/Coach Mark Malaki-Williams. The most humble paddler shared:

1. Paddling tips

2. How to execute the stroke

3. How Vaka Manu became 5x national champions

4. How to deal with the challenges that teams face

5. Motivation

This session inspired me to revisit stroke technique and it is still a work in progress, so watch the video clips that I have already posted and see if you can gain some insights to add to your paddling kete.

Thanks heaps Mark
