Anyone practice...

Swimming with your paddle. I swam yesterday with my paddle towing my boat for about an hour. I felt like I could go all day! Anyone who questions the purchase or grip of a Greenland style storm paddle needs to try swimming with a Greenland paddle. I felt like I was planting the paddle in deep clay with each stroke. Great exercise and great practice.

Craig,

Who enjoys practicing kayaking skills--the weirder the better! I'm sure folks out at my local practice area think I'm nuts! Here I am swimming with my paddle towing my boat with all these other folks paddling by and waving...
