Good idea, seen lots of variations on this recently.

I'm not going to pick your technique apart, but would suggest you try filming from the centreline of the boat so you can use your videos to check if you are paddling evenly both sides. It may just be the camera angle but it looks as though you bring your right hand much further across the boat than the left. This may be quite common, I often feel a difference in my right and left sides which is really hard to nail down and train out, now would be a great time to concentrate on technique.

Have fun!

You don’t even need the kayak 🤣 An hour or two daily is going some way towards keeping me paddle fit, until 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 lockdown relaxation begins later this week.....
