Gary Gregg

jimfoti-garygregg-sqrI’ve been back in Sydney about three weeks now and have been putting into practice your advice.

You have helped me to be able to analyze my stroke by being aware of the various components and their cause and effect. For example. I am now aware that by letting the top hand drop down past the sternum towards the knees, the blade continues on past the hip and the boat de-powers, which in turn lessens the impact of the following stroke.

I have also found that with the correct stroke the boat is more stable in cross chop because of the greater boat speed. Although it's still not as stable as the Antares.

It's still not 2nd nature so I have to stay aware and I have found the top hand dropping when I get tired, but I suspect that will improve.

Jim, it was a great pleasure to spend time with you. My sincere thanks for your guidance. I now feel I can at least see the way forward to becoming a better paddler.

Singapore to Molokai

We were 16 keen paddlers from Singapore looking for a Hawaiian adventure, so we decided to take on the challenge of the Kaiwi Channel. Who better to guide us than Jim Foti? A local legend. We were lucky to strike epic conditions, certainly a lot different to the flat waters of Singapore. Jim took great care of us and ensured our trip was not only an absolute blast but also safe. I have no hesitation in recommending Jim for your next paddling adventure. Mahalo!

James Rojas

"I attended one of Jim's camps in Feb 2015. The camp size was small (6/7) so we each had a great deal of personal instruction from Jim. The level of experience varied quite a bit, but Jim was able to create workouts so no one was feeling left behind or feeling bored. We had several opportunities to surf OC1s around Kailua Bay and the Mokulua Islands. That was what I enjoyed the most. My confidence on an OC1 increased immensely, especially when surfing. An added benefit was that I was able to try out 5 different OC1s. That helped a great deal with my decision on which OC1 to buy next." Also, as a co-ch of a Novice team, I was able to pick up new teaching techniques and terminology that I have since used with my Novice team. I look forward to attending more of Jim's camps, and I have recommended his camps to several of my teammates/coaches."

Steering Wisdom

Mahalo, Mollie and family, for the special day of Jim’s steerage wisdom. I learned a few important things and went on to work feeling so good! Aloha, Alexandra Avery
