QuickTips for Standup Paddling: Roll the Fingers

Dave Kalama discusses how rolling the fingers can help transfer the effort in standup paddling from your arms to your body, which is your source of power. Relaxing your arm helps you use your whole body to pull the board past the paddle. QuickTips is a series of How-to Standup Paddle videos from Quickblade Paddles & Distressed Mullet and shot by Chris Aguilar.

  1. It was you, Dave, you and Laird, that got me into the SUP when all my friends were referring to them as “Sweepers”. Now, I’m learning the wave-riding part of SUP and this suggestion helps. Thanks and Mahalo!

  2. interesante la explicación. Cualquier detalle es útil para mi porque yo fabrico remos a pedido del usuario.Mis remos son de madera y bambú. Muchos prefieren estos remos para surf por ser ligeramente más pesados, flexibles y el viento los mueve menos.

  3. Por inquietud personal,,,y por medio del Sr Marco Brivio(quien se dedica a hacer remos) he desarrollado diferentes modelos de remos,y en vez de la gente apoyar la investigación : de remos con cuchara para jalar mas agua,o con un ángulo mayor de la pala para hacer la remada mas larga,,,o con una extensión de la pala hacia el mango tipo cuchilla que corte el agua y que relaje el brazo,he recibido un sinnúmero de críticas.Te felicito Dave,,,por buscar las innovaciones y que sigan los éxitos.
    Aloha…
