Don’t make these common mistakes

 
  • Always hold the paddle with one hand on the top of the handle and the other on the shaft — a lot of people always want to hold the paddle like a broomstick, with both hands on the shaft — don’t do it!
     
  • Keep your feet parallel and spread shoulder width apart. Everyone wants to get in a surf stance, but that makes paddling on the flat water ten times harder. Plus, you will fall. Save your surf stance for the surf, and keep your feet parallel with toes pointed toward the nose.
     
  • Make sure your grip on the paddle is shoulder width apart — short grips will give you a powerless stroke.
     
  • Dip the blade fully into the water and take a long stroke, letting your large back muscles do the work. Many people put the full brunt of the stroke in the arms. Let your big back muscles do the brunt of the work.
