CoG – Stroke Rate – Active Blade

When entering the current or paddling down river are you doing any of the following:

  1. Altering the height of your paddles, from say a high stroke when paddling forward to lowering the paddles to enable reverse strokes, stern rudders. This also will lower your centre of gravity when entering a fast flow and the low paddle will allow you to segue into a  stern rudder.
  2. Slowing your stroke rate, you paddling too much, trying to get strokes in where an active static blade would suffice?
