Re: Pulling left

Hi Jim, Yep, video is the way ahead here , along with dialling it back as you suggest to work on consistency. Upstream and downstream every time, yes i do get turned quite often on the bends but this is lessening as i learn river position better. I'm seeing the left turn mid channel on the straights...

Re: Pulling left

Chris, Good point about whether I've got a bad right side or a weak left side. My sense is that the right hand side is deficient and i think this has a lot to do with my left hand control and drive of the paddle. Speed, catch, pull, all that seems good on the left, my dominant right hand taking a mo...

Thanks twopigs, all good points. I'll see if i can set a gopro up on the rear grab handle rather than going by feel.

Re: Pulling left

Mixed wing/flat in k2

We both need plenty of coaching and it is indeed planned for the near future. We were talking about wing paddles after an evening of youtube vids; I'm keen but he's n...
