  The way the forward stroke is taught
  Posted by: dajarr on May-10-13 1:57 PM (EST)

to beginners, the right hand is the "control hand". The right hand stays fixed on the shaft, with the knuckles aligned with the top edge of the right blade. The shaft swivels through the left hand, with the feather angle adjusted so that the left blade will be perpendicular to the side of the boat as that blade is planted. For an unfeathered paddle, such as GP, the control hand switches with each paddle stroke.
