About Mastery Level 2

Learn and practice where to position yourself to catch a wave, when to time your paddle, and how to enhance power in your sprint paddle. In this extra extended weekend, we reveal and practice finding a wave's takeoff zone and where you should be positioned to catch the wave. Also, you learn where to start your paddle into the wave and review the 3-stroke Burst Sprint technique. In addition, apply your new learning directly to the ocean when we go surf at a few of the local breaks.
