Every once in a while our stores are visited by expert guests who come to share their knowledge with our customers and staff. This time, we have experienced paddler and Werner Paddles Regional Sales Manager/Field Marketing Coordinator Danny Mongno coming to both our Austin and Houston locations to present his in-store Paddles and Paddling seminar.
About the Seminar: Paddles and Paddling
The sure fire way to guarantee more fun while paddling is to use less energy. The best two ways to get started are to assure you are using the proper fitting paddle and to learn how to perform strokes more efficiently. In Paddles and Paddling, join kayak instructor Danny Mongno as he starts you on this quest. Starting with the paddle, we will define low angle and high angle paddling, paddle fit options, proper lengths and prescribe the perfect fitting paddle for each individual. From there we will dissect the Forward Stroke and see how, along with matching a better fitting paddle, you can use less energy and have more fun on the water. Whether you are a fisherman, fitness paddler or quietly exploring the waters in your back yard, this seminar will talk to you.

About the Speaker: Danny Mongno
Danny Mongno has been paddling for 22 years, starting working at a kayak shop when he was 16 and has been on the paddle sports “tour” now for 14 years. “Geez, I don’t feel that old! Luckily Werner Paddles has given me the opportunity to do what I love for a living and a day does not go by that I am not thankful or stoked to be a paddler.” It is quite the lifestyle as Danny paddles most every day spending 8 months a year on the road going from event to event.
