Climbing blade angle

A viewers question:

I have watched the instant access version of The Kayak Roll about 10 times ;-)   The video stresses that the power blade should slice through the water with no resistance, and watching the video I see the results work.  My question is, with it slicing (instead of using a climbing angle and pushing down on the blade) what gives you the leverage to brace up while doing a hip snap?

Free Kayak Roll online showing


I would like to offer a benefit to all the members of your paddling school or club... a free Kayak Roll movie online showing for roll classes.

All it requires is that you send email and web publicity to your school or club.
