  Elbows Up on Brace
  Posted by: LittleRed on Sep-22-12 9:02 AM (EST)

First, I want to commend you for practicing and seeking advice. As you indicated, some formal lessons will help, too. On a low brace, your arms should be in more of a push-up position, elbows up is the way I remember it. This not only provides more power to the bracing action, it better protects your shoulders from injury. Last, I want to say, I've swallowed my share of yucky water, too. We all do.
