PostSubject: Pine Barrens Functional Freestyle Symposium   Tue Sep 12, 2017 8:08 pm

Coming up in soon: THE PINE BARRENS FUNCTIONAL FREESTYLE SYMPOSIUM in the New Jersey Pine Barrens.

The root of Freestyle Canoeing is the accurate and efficient use of the paddle, body and boat. Many people may associate freestyle canoeing with the Interpretive canoe routines, but the basic techniques used by freestylers make canoeing easier (and fun). Whether you are traveling to your next campsite, or twisting down a narrow Pine Barrens stream, doing it efficiently makes a difference at the end of the day.

Hopefully, once you learn some basics in the Functional Freestyle class, you’ll want to learn more at one of the other canoe symposiums. Learning the advanced techniques will allow you to accurately put your boat in the right spot for the situation, and then set up for your next move.

With practice, you’ll become one with your boat. Conscious thought about which stroke or maneuver to use next will vanish, giving way to spontaneous transitions. The flow of strokes and maneuvers will become as natural as walking down a narrow path through the woods. You’ll learn to love your Canoe.
