The Sport of Paddle boarding (Remo) in the City of Kite Beach has been expanded greatly thanks to the efforts of the Government of La Republica Dominicana.
The Secretary of Environment had the vision and ability to create one of the coolest tours on kite beach. The Secretary created a canal around the kite Beach Lagoon, (El Choco National Park) providing an excellent opportunity for Paddle Boarders. No matter the wind or weather, paddling in the Laguna Goleta is always fun. For tours or to join the Method Paddle Boarding Club email us at: methodlodge@gmail.com.

Paddle Boarding

Lesson FAQs
by premiere Trainer, John Holzhall
Paddle Boarding Tours should be easy, in fact no one should even fall in.
Paddle Surfing is a different deal. Waves and wind change everything:
1. Site selection is key...look for flat water with NO wind...until your good.
2. Pierce the shore-break with the nose of the board.
3. Kneel down to get used to the action...focus on short strokes out infront of your body.
4. Practice keeping the "top" hand in front of the face.
5. Push with the top hand, pull with the lower hand.
6. Again, short strokes in front of the body.
7. When approaching the break, drop down to your knees to paddle through.
8. When you get knocked off your board, pierce the wave with your head while curving your body to the sky, hold the paddle in one hand.
9. Once outside the break paddle along the coast looking for a wave.
10. Hit your wave running.
