Whitewater Kayaking: How to Balance on Edge

Do you find yourself flipping a lot when you don’t want to? Or maybe you’re trying to surf and stern squirt, but can’t quite seem to get the edge that you need for success.

When you can effectively balance on edge to varying degrees while in motion your paddling will soar to the next level. To do that you’ve got to start with the basics.

In this video that I created for my Virtual Whitewater Master Class group coaching program, I teach you the edge control exercise I’ve been practicing for over 20 years. It’s a simple practice that you can do on flatwater that will strengthen your core, improve your balance and help you paddle confidently in a wide range of conditions.

Watch the video, practice it and feel your kayaking skills soar!
