Greenland Paddling Technique

SK101, SK102 and SK 115 course. The Kayak Academy was the first N. American school to offer instruction in Greenland style paddling technique. George Gronseth went to Greenland in 1990 and learned how to use a Greenland paddle from the experts in Greenland. George has more experience teaching and paddling with Greenland style paddles than anyone this side of the Atlantic. When switching from a Euro paddle to a Greenland stick paddle, you'll find all the paddling strokes are different, and no-one teaches these differences better than George Gronseth. Greenland paddling technique is an option in our SK 115 and SK 111 courses.
