What is it?

The Sweep Stroke is the second fundamental stroke and is used to turn your boat. It is a very useful correction stroke when paddling straight and is a faster way to change your direction when the boat is stationary

Step by Step

  1. Start in the basic position. Put your leading blade near your feet with the whole blade in the water and your second hand at the height of your chest.
  2. Look over the opposite shoulder to the leading blade.
  3. Push yourself away from the water using pulling with the leading blade and move the blade horizontally, drawing a half circle until it reaches your tail. Keep looking over your shoulder to increase the rotation.
