Well, acutally I started out paddling with a really good high angle technique but a knob of an instructor ruined it by forcing me to lower the angle. His idiotic theory was that high angle stroke was unsuitable for the ocean... "you're paddling like a flatwater race guy, you wont be able to brace in waves". I will never forgive that guy.

I believe racing paddlers use the most efficient stroke and not a lot of them use low angle If you are long distance paddling being efficient means using less effort which in turn means travelling further more easily. I recently went for a little paddle and I found that if I was feeling tired, concentrating on full rotation and a good high angle stroke improved things markedly.

I met this bloke once who said 'Its only a skin boat' and now all I can do is bang them together and get them out of the shed and onto the water fast. My attention to detail has dropped about 6 notches.
