Boat Balance and Edge Control
Boat balance and edge control are the fundamental movements that form the basis of most of the skills you will use out on moving water. If you can master the art of balance and stability you will find that you can move in, out and around whitewater with success and confidence.
The more time you spend developing your balance and edge control on flat water. The easier it will be for you to progress out onto the moving water and successfully conquer your first rapids and currents.
