Improvers River Trip - Paddle Strokes

Event details

From 2nd December. The rule of 6 will once again apply to meeting outdoors - for recreational paddling with friends and family, and for groups of coaching and leader ratios of 1:5.


Official trip

Do you know your draw stroke from your stern rudder? Have you perfected your hanging draw ? We fall into the habit of using the stroke that works, without working out why those other strokes don't.  We'll look at a variety of strokes on flat water. We'll then take them to a short white water run and see how they feel.  If you want to do some reading/watching in advance, check out Eric Jackson (EJ) on Youtube, or his book "Whitewater Paddling: Strokes and concepts"
