  paddlin' is one thing and thinkin'
  Posted by: tdaniel on Mar-14-13 10:58 PM (EST)
 

about it is another. I liked the bfoote video. #2 usage. The paddle certainly isn't very vertical when used as a correction to a forward stroke.
The comment about using the pry to make adjusts to offside ferries is spot on.
I also think when you're moving the boat lateraling, or "wedging" the blade is definately more vertical in that situation
as far as little boats go I ultimately gave up on them because I was having to jack the seat heights up riduculously high, now I'm rec canoein' but still runnin' some whitewater, that just puts me on my knees for short spells.
