I didn't know that stroke had actually made it into a book or even that it was a "real" stroke. I admit sometimes I'm lookin' for a bit of validation. You figure something nifty out and sometimes its nice to be told its legit. What I like about this forum is that you have a lot of folks approaching subjects from different perspectives. Ultimately, I thnk what we paddle (style of boat/water environment) shapes how we paddle. Who we paddle with also transforms our paddling. I pick people's brains all the time when I'm out paddlin' so its great to do the same thing here. Maybe I'm not really so interested in getting folks to learn about pry strokes but how differently we all use them and how we can paddle differently and its okay. Them Amazonian Indians didn't know how to pry, or wear pfds, and sat in the wrong end of the boat, and they even paddled on the same side and yet I still think I can learn from 'em. I wonder if they offer certification and how much they charge for a lesson?
