I spent some time over the weekend working on paddling strokes with my middle child. Paddling looks so easy, but there is really a lot of technique that makes an efficient stroke. Paddling these big lakes in the boundary waters can be quite the challenge on windy days and a 9yr old paddling up front, so hopefully this practice will help. We'll be headed back to the BWCA shortly for one last trip before school starts. Can't wait!!!!
