Re: “It Took a While, But I Learned to Paddle

This is garbage. Not all coaches are created equal. Just because you didn’t take the time to research paddlesports coaches and hired the dude at the gunshop to teach you doesn’t mean the concept of teachers, coaches, and professionals is invalid. It just means you were too lazy to look, and also too lazy to actually learn any paddling skills. This is a shining example of the Dunning Kruger Effect. Thanks NCJ for promoting this garbage that increases the odds of injury and fatality in paddlesports as well as insults our business and life’s work. People winging it in paddlesports around here is THE reason there are deaths here every year. Why would you promote avoiding professional instruction and shit in the whole concept. I want to learn to fly an airplane. Guess I’ll just wing it on my own because there was an instructor I didn’t like.

Re: “It Took a While, But I Learned to Paddle

Not all coaches are created equal. Next time I’d recommend utilizing professional paddlesports coaches rather than the dude at the gun shop. I can’t really figure out what the point of this article is. It’s literally talking shit about professional training and encouraging people to just wing it on their own. This is Dunning Kruger at its finest. And a whole article to boot! Rather than winging it on your own, maybe do some research to find the best instructors in your area before trashing the entire concept of teachers, instructors, and professionals.
