Jen, Lori and Jane are showing different strokes used to control your boat.
The “Brace”. Keep your elbow up on the side of the brace. Notice Jen’s body position.
The “Sculling Stroke” is applied to turn or correct the position or direction.
Jane using the “Sculling Stroke” to move sideways. Move the blade back and forth while changing the blade angle.
Keep the paddle at near-vertical and don’t lean out too far.
Practicing the “Sculling Stroke”.
The “360”, using sweep strokes to turn the boat around. Lori is really into it…who said kayaking isn’t fun.
Balance practice with a high angle forward stroke. Impressive!
