  The balance brace works a bit different
  Posted by: dong on Feb-03-13 3:04 PM (EST)

for each person and kayak. The balance brace is a good technique for rolling. Without the ability to balance brace you are either upside down or right side up. It gives you full control of your roll and greatly improves the dependability of a roll. Most kayaks aren't designed to balance brace and limits the rolling techniques you can use. The ability to balance brace gives the paddler the feeling of being a duck in the water. Your not either right side up or up side down, your one with the water and the kayak. Finding a kayak that balance braces takes time. Jays Outer Island design is great. If I can't balance brace in a kayak then I feel like I'm paddling a barge. The middle area of a roll is the sweetest part. Keep searching, you'll get it.
