Sea Kayak Stroke Modeling Analysis from Keith Wikle on Vimeo.
This is a reshoot of some footage for my ACA Level 4 Instructor Certification.
The following strokes are demonstrated:
Bow rudder turn
Low Brace turn
Sweep Stroke turn (pivot turn alternating reverse/forward)
Many thanks to Alec, Sharon and Lyn for giving up a whole day to help me shoot this video.
There are a few less than optimal strokes, but overall not too shabby. The low brace turn was effected by the wind, so the turn was sort of stalled by the wind.
I thought you had to reverse-paddle a figure eight course! I want to see the video on that, swearing included.
But, nice video, although I prefer your usual soundtrack selections.
Awesome video – you make kayaking look easy!
