I have just recently rekindled my love for the canoe after many, many years with the kayaks. I have been working on being a more efficient paddler using the single blade canoe paddle and have become pretty good with the basic strokes…My issue is with the J stroke. I do well when paddling on the right side of the boat (I am right handed) but when I change over to the left side I just can’t get it right. I get all discombobulated (sp). Sometimes the thumb points down, sometimes up, Sometimes I just don’t know.
MY question is does anyone suffer from the same affliction and if so have you worked it out?
Thanks for any advice.
