And just when I thought canoeing could not get any more extreme, this guy comes in and just totally blows me away. From costume and song selection to paddle placement and turn initiation, this guy nails it. The crowd knows it, and now you do to.
Where can the sport of freestyle canoeing even go from here? I honestly cannot say.
American Freestyle canoeing is the art of paddling a canoe on flat water with perfect control of its movements. The canoe is usually leaned over to the side to help the boat turn sharply and efficiently and paddle strokes are taken on either side of the canoe depending on the individual move. Balance, paddle placement and turn initiation are a few keys to this control. Since the movements seem dance-like, some practice this art timed to music, which is the ultimate in control.
