Whitewater Canoe Strokes and Braces


"I shot this video while on my trip down Northern Saskatchewan's Porcupine River. To make it down the river I needed to use several whitewater strokes which I cover in this video. Learn the basics of the draw, and cross draw strokes, the pry, back paddle, and both the high brace and low brace."
