Blayze:  Coaching Platform Built by the Best to Bring out YOUR Best

Blayze recently launched a one-of-a-kind personalized video training platform where stand up paddle athletes have their paddling technique analyzed by world champion water athletes Connor Baxter and Zane Schweitzer. This one-on-one tutorial experience is designed to enhance a paddler’s maximum speed and performance in the surf.

““The Blayze coaching is a high end video analysis program that allows you to work directly with a professional. Its easy and effective methods are used to boost your performance. You can expect quality coaching from high end athletes who have mastered their craft! I am personally really stoked to continue working with paddlers around the world who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to paddle with me.”  – Connor Baxter

Blayze:  A History of Performance

Dion von Moltke, Blayze co-founder and former championship race car driver launched an online coaching program that met with rapid success after stepping down from his competitive career. The coaching program was so successful he reframed his original concept to capture a broader spectrum of athletes. Soon Blayze , with co-founder Christopher Roberts, was launched. Von Moltke’s experience as a high performance coach inspired his understanding of the need for individualized coaching programs more focused on client training and less on the complicated logistics of travel, conditions and weather.

Today, the Blayze program offers interactive, highly individualized performance training with a wide array of top tier coaches. A dynamic online platform offers paddlers a video tutorial where they upload videos of their own paddling performance which are then analyzed frame-by-frame by professional coaches who offer instruction on paddle technique, body positioning and more.

Other watersports within the growing Blayze wheelhouse include foiling, surfing and kiteboarding. Blayze organizers look to add additional programs for tennis and other competitive sports in the months to come.

Online Coaching for Water Athletes, from Beginner to Advanced

The effectiveness of Blayze’s online video coaching stems from a client’s ability to work directly with professional coaches and re-watch their private visual coaching lessons over and over again. Blayze founder Dion von Moltke says, “There is a difference between watching a YouTube video and receiving a coaching program personalized for YOU.”

All athletes benefit from online coaching. Whether they are seeking development in the skills of stand up paddle racing, SUP surfing, foiling or surfing, working with world title champions like Connor Baxter and Zane Schweitzer represents an incredible opportunity to learn from the best.
