Although a Greenland paddle will work when used with the same techniques as a Euro paddle, the benefits of using the Greenland paddle will not be fully utilized.
Learn the basics of Greenland style paddling, safety and how to maneuver a kayak. A variety of different style of braces, strokes and techniques are covered as well as an efficient forward stroke. Some of the special issues that occur with rescues of skin-on-frame boats that often are used by Greenland style will also be covered.
