We spent the week out at a lake learning the basic canoe strokes to prepare for a whitewater paddle at the end of the week. Canoeing is a graceful sport that becomes meditative once you know how to make the canoe go where you want it to go. Reverse figure eights, sculling pry's and draw's, forward figure eights and pivoting turns were some of the techniques we worked on solo and tandem. Eventually I'd like to do solo whitewater canoeing like in this video I have posted. AWESOME!
