I really appreciated this article! I've always used a similar knee/thigh move to edge my kayak, and find it analogous to the weighting/unweighting one does in alpine skiing to effect a carved turn. Unfortunately, when I've had previous instruction in the hip snap, the instructor has focused on something going on at the hip and torso - which I could never quite get right. This makes sense - can't wait to try it in the water.
