Kayaking Fundamentals: The Three Golden Rules of Paddling

In this first episode of our Kayaking Fundamentals series, expert instructor Ken Whiting shows you the golden rules of paddling three key concepts that apply to every kind of kayaking. Learn how to use a cooperative division of the body for key kayak strokes and for kayak rolling; how to maintain a power position to improve paddling strength and help prevent shoulder injuries; and how to achieve torso rotation in order to get your core upper body muscles involved in each stroke instead of just your arms. Mastering these techniques will give you a strong foundation for learning how to roll your kayak and execute advanced paddle strokes.
