How To Hold Your Paddle

To hold your paddle correctly, follow these steps:

  1. Start by standing next to your paddle with the blade resting on the ground.
  2. Grasp the paddle with both hands, placing one hand on the top of the handle and the other hand on the shaft.
  3. Your hands should be shoulder-width apart, and your elbows should be slightly bent.
  4. Lift the paddle off the ground, and rest the blade on your shoulder.
  5. Adjust your grip as needed to ensure a comfortable and secure hold on the paddle.

Remember to maintain a relaxed grip on the paddle to reduce strain on your hands and wrists.
