OK, I’m a pretty new kayaker, have had a couple of lessons, and am just learning basic skills with my Euro paddle. I’d been intrigued by the GP for a while, got to try another person’s out for a few minutes once, liked it, but decided I should get better at the Euro paddle first before mixing myself up by trying to learn a new paddling technique, and spending $$ for a GP without knowing what I needed. That was an easy decision when I was looking at spending $200.
But I found a used Gearlab GP paddle (I think it’s the Oyashio style) for a price too good to pass up. And now of course I wanna use it! Will I learn bad habits if I just watch a few videos and give it a whirl? Is it intuitive or not? Or should I wait? Thanks.
