Notice To Kayakers From Crescent52

Hi Joey

do you think you could post this?

Kayaking is a great sport, and a wonderfully graceful way to enjoy the outdoors. I notice many paddlers I see on Cape Ann hold the paddle upside down. To get the most power, and best aerodynamic response the straighter side of the blade should be on top (better approach for wind) and the curved part of the blade should be on the bottom- allowing more power to sweep through the water.

The attached photo is a good straight on view of the way to hold a paddle.

Enjoy the water!
