big help! I capsized today on the willamette, I think I had too much weight on one side, and my paddling was too far away from my kayak. Thanks guys..

Is this video meant to take the place of professional instruction?

This is great info. I youtubed this after planning my trip from Taiwan to the United States with google maps. Go to google maps and try typing from Taiwan to United States, then read 124.

@golddang The blade enters the water at the hips, onside arm slightly bent and the torso rotated. The body then unwinds towards the offside pushing forward with the back side of the paddle. The blade then comes out at the toes. If you have rotated your torso properly, your offside arm should be reading to be dropped straight down to become the onside and the process repeats itself. Like swimming every 2-4 strokes turn your head on the setup and look where you are going.

@liguowei70 It's not bad form for the offside hand to cross the center line of the boat. In fact it's required for any draw, the stern steer, sweep and reverse stroke, also in waves or wind, you need to keep the paddle as close to the boat as possible to allow you to maximize energy from the stroke and plant your blade deeply in the cresting wave. The critical point is to NOT have the offside hand pass the center of the torso - maintain your box! Otherwise you risk shoulder injury.

I think the guy at the end there has no legs so they propped him up in a kayak.
