Greenland Chest Scull Tutorial


A: Set up with the paddle extended to your right.
Hold the bottom of the blade with your left hand away from your body.
Grab the loom with your right hand.

B: Slide the paddle out sideways and away from the boat, slowly letting your weight be supported by the paddle's buoyancy. Make sure that your knee is locked in under the foredeck.

C: Once fully extended, push your head back to arch your back.
Sweep the paddle with your right hand to create the sculling motion. Keep your left hand still.
The back of your head should come out of the water. It's not necessary to lift your head out (unless you need air).

D: Recover by arching your back in the opposite direction.
Pull your chin to your chest, then rotate your body forward.
Keep your head low in the water until you can slide it up onto the foredeck.
Finish by sweeping the paddle in and across the foredeck.
