but high angle double blade paddling is inherently more powerful. There's no such thing as a low angle ww paddling style, because low angle can't get the job done.
Low angle is good when you're in a fast sea kayak and have to paddle all day. It reduces strain on the limbs and body. But some are up to high angle sea kayaking.
I advise all canoeists intending to use a double blade to set up for high angle paddling. A comfortable seating or kneeling position is high enough that a high angle style is almost necessary. It allows a shorter paddle with shorter blades too.
