When most people think of edge control in kayaking, they only think about using edges on a single axis, right and left. The problem is that whitewater rivers rarely allow for the use of a single axis weight transfer or edge. Typically, there is some combination of weight transfer, bow or stern edging, and edging right or left involved…. quadrants. Quadrants are a more three dimensional perspective on edging that will change the way you see boat control, running rivers, and freestyle. It’s a total game-changer that will make your edge control significantly more precise and help you better understand which edges to use and when. This video goes over the basics of edging, builds into quadrants, gives you real world examples, and then shows you the drills to get your edge control on point.
