  turning the hips
  Posted by: NateHanson on Feb-11-13 8:40 AM (EST)

I can't speak for Jay, but for my part, I definitely recommend having the space in your boat to rotate your hips, not just your torso. This is useful for everything from forward paddling, to draw strokes, to balance braces. I don't know many people who can turn their shoulders 90 degrees to their hips! Yet there are lots of times when we want to be able to get our shoulders in line with the length of the boat - so rotating your butt in the seat can make that easier.
