  Yes, I Agree, For 30 Years, Oscar

Has been my paddling hero and inspiration, and I'll always remember him and his brother Herman using flat "euro" blades to beat all the elite paddlers, including Olympians that were all using wing paddles in the 1989 BANKOH Molokai Kayak Challenge. All I'm suggesting is an alternative to the three principles of paddling: rotation, rotation and rotation.

Simply drop your body weight on the blade at the "catch" and feel the boat accelerate forward. No additional effort from your muscles are necessary, other than the reset for the next stroke. Adopting this technique has enable me to extend my water time from 20 minutes to 2 hours. Trust me, it isn't fun to be 2 miles out at sea when your back goes out.
