John Puakea–An Outrigger Legend Tells How to Paddle Faster.
John Puakea is a legend in the Outrigger Canoe community and has brought his years of experience to the Stand Up Paddle world. As an exceptional technical coach, John has helped push world-class paddlers to the next level in international competition. His ability to improve the performance of already-elite paddlers also led Team Bradley to consecutive first-place finishes in the Molokai-to-Oahu Na Wahine O Ke Kai, and to the fastest crossing time by any women’s team in the history of the race. John talks about his entry into the outrigger canoe world and how to develop a fast paddle stroke in both OC and Stand UP Paddle Board Racing.
