During Feel Good Week we decided to so some filming of things we don’t normally do. Nick got some sweet Clean Blunt/paddle twirls, we got some cool combos like a Clean Blunt-McNasty-airscrew triple combo, and some other things. Mostly we crashed and burned, but had fun doing it. I did a
little practice in the eddy doing a paddle toss and quick backdeck roll in
flatwater and paddle catch but never threw it high enough. It was my turn
and I just decided that if I was going to catch the paddle I would need to
really huck it high, so I did, and bingo, right back into my left hand on
the grip, and a quick grab with my right hand and I was off to the next
move. I remember when Davey Hearn threw his C1 paddle over the slalom wire
and went to catch it, but missed and it broke his nose. I was a little
leary about this myself, but decided that nothing ventured, nothing gained
and it worked out just fine this time…
