:D a bit overmotivated... Elosegi, overmotivated??? In canoe slalom, you put in months, and years of hard work, and not only the hard training work, but all of your time, energy, passion (and money), all of your everything. It is hard, but you do it because it is a dream, the biggest dream of your ...

worked on the mental game? I constantly do It can be winning a slalom race or styling a class V rapid - at times, you have to perform perfectly, no matter how bad you might feel inside, no matter how high the pressure is, no matter how nervous you are, no matter everything. Paddling is a psycho game...

hi there again @jakke: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=twbd3HSrsRo look at about 1:50 there it's shown what I'm talking about offside tilt in slalom - indeed, it it made not to stop, but to boost speed. and it's a hard and complex move to learn on a river descend, you don't need to fight for seconds,...

Timing of initiationcan be less trivial when you have tiny eddies, nasty eddylines etc.... @ jakke I might be wrong, but whenever I paddled OC1 or C1 (creekboat) I never understood that there shall be a difference in the basic paddling technique and the way the boat-current-interaction works. C1/Oc1...

[/quote] So we :) really needn't be racing in. [/quote] i think a certain amount of speed is necessary to cross the eddyline. there's several components in an eddy approach - one of the is speed! plus boat angle related to eddyline and the timing of changing the tilt. when too slow, you might not ge...

well, I have only 10 min cycle to a great whitewater race/training course . This allows me to paddle basically every day, and even when it's stressful at university or work, I rise earlier and just paddle before lessons

Well, this was a semi-serious post written in a non-serious manner. I see that it flew over the head of many members. I am not surprised, or even offended. Pleased would be the word. What do you expect from this crowd? In fact, saddle design in c-boats is primitive (as are c-boaters), and probably ...

the only feature available to me for regular training is good old washing machine at home, but I think this will do

that's right though I'd rather say it's not about believing, but knowing that you can do it and this is a question everyone has to find an own answer, regardless of what anybody else is saying. I don't run something when I'm not completely sure that I would perform really well. On the other hand, I ...
