Practice Makes Perfect

The beach trip was cancelled this weekend. Instead I was out on the lake Saturday afternoon, and ran into Scott Burian. Scott and I had paddled in the 2005 WaterTribe Everglades Challenge, his tribal name was BilgePump.

Scott, a recent convert to the Greenland Paddle, was out practicing rolling with his new Lumpy Paddle, made by Bill Bremer. Bill a well known local paddler, has quite a following both locally and nationally with his handmade Greenland paddles. I love mine.

Scott had a previous on-side roll with his Euro paddle, now he can scull and roll on his off-side too. We practiced rolling for about an hour, then I went off for a short paddle.

Photo below is Scott and I in January 2205 on a training paddle for the EC.
