I've been using your online video for a few years now, starting with the layback rolling one. The most important thing I have taken from these videos is that torso rotation really starts at the feet and involves the butt & hips more so then twisting at the waist or shoulders.
This had been a great help to me in preparing for upcoming BCU4* assessment & ACA L3 Certification Exam. My confidence in conditions and ability to maneuver my kayak is vastly improved. Your demonstrations are explanations are clear and concise and yet disclose some techniques that I have not seen in other online video courses.
After watching your Layback Roll Tutorial I spent 2 days at the sea trying to do it. First day it did not work, so I went back to the videos and I found out what I was doing wrong. The second day it was a success. Following your steps I got in the balance position and then the roll came effortlessly, exactly as you describe it.
I did not believe that some video without the physical presence of the instructor would work, but it did and it did really fast.
The videos show how to better maneuver a kayak. For example, now when I turn it's a stern draw and a bow rudder; it's automatic. the rolls are one continuous sweep and sculling, bracing and edging are smoother.
The videos have giving me tools to continually improve my skills. It's refreshing to learn from a master paddler.
If you are looking to get the most from your kayaking experience and want to extend your abilities, Paulo's bracing videos will help you do that in a methodical way.
Paulo has a way of teaching that allows the student to excel at his own pace and build on prior lessons with ease.
