  rudder/skeg

"...not everyone prefers to use them most of the time"

I thought the thread was about the benefit of rudder for paddler with compromised shoulder!

Just because it "can be done" doesn't mean it's better to do so. Given the fact of almost 100% racers uses rudder and almost 100% expedition paddlers use either skeg or rudder, I think the case is pretty damn clear!

As a practice and learning process, there maybe times when one doesn't use them. But anyone who doesn't use them when they're available (i.e. boats designed to have them) is simply misguided.
