Welcome to Traditional Flatwater Canoeing with Caleb Davis




In this video, Caleb Davis shows you how you can become proficient in solo and tandem paddling using your own tandem canoe. Traditional paddling is the most commonly used tandem technique. It is identified by its long graceful stroke. Traditional paddling is done primarily with the arms, back and thighs providing propulsion. The traditional solo technique is identified by a Paddler who is kneeling near the center of the canoe and the canoe is heeled over so that the Paddler side gunwale is almost at the water. Paddling strokes are only on one side of the canoe.  DVD
