S is for Simple
Probably the thing I like most about paddling is the simplicity. Effort equals movement. Relaxed effort equals a leisurely pace with time to see what around you. Strong effort delivers the workout and the focus on smaller world and optimal sustained effort. I like the concentration on perfect strokes and keeping a high rate in a straight line. Although it' not as simple, sometimes on my paddleboard I'll bring both canoe and SUP paddles. Short for sitting and tall for standing. Different everything between the paddles. I like this variety. What I like more than anything though is getting out on the water.
