Re: tricks to get your head last out of the water...

Not managed to hit either the pool or running water to try out all suggestions.
Thanks a lot for them though.
One of my few new year resolutions is to achieve a combat roll :roll:

Any of you guys have paddling resolutions?

tricks to get your head last out of the water...

I have never managed to roll in anger more than 50% of the time on the river. I have admittedly not been to a pool session in a couple of years but then I hit 100% at the time. I always try but this damned head comes up all the time! So if I'm lucky and power through I go up (not ideal)! Once I miss...

Re: what do you tell the children?

Shame... never had any other reactions than: "you are not running this with THAT thing, are you?". Then proceed by running it, most of the time clean-ish. After I get claps on the back and cheers, regardless of the swimming or not. That's in the UK, occasionally in the Southern French Alps. I'm most...

Re: seek feedback

Ta John, Be sure I've been watching canoing at the games... being French living in the UK got a lot of excitement. As for the filming... was apparently too eager so they kept missing me with the lag of the camera. I did do more than 1 xbow :wink: I'm moving nearer good paddling so will be practicing...

Re: seek feedback

Exactly Ian. While I did not feel uncomfortable, I did not hit any of the lines the way I thought I would. Need to be more active with that paddle for sure. Although I did not realise it at the time there's far too much low bracing in there. As for the boof stroke, well I found I had no idea where I...

Re: seek feedback

a paddle in the air won't help you boof :wink: . your last stroke is just way too soon, that's all. you just need to get one more stroke in, or wait a little longer for it. you don't always want to approach full speed. better to be in control, and save just a bit for the boof. be patient. I'm with ...

Re: Olympics.....Dude.

I'll have to put my money behind Tony... question of principle really 8)

Combination of lousy weather rock climbing summer 2008, rafting on my native river and beijing footage got me in this malarky... well excited about the games!
