Advice on technique?

Hey everyone, I was hoping to get some technical advice. I tend to dip my paddle when I try to clean blunt. The solution should be pretty simple: keep the paddle out of the water. Of course. I'm working on that. However, the whole trick is still a little shaky, so I was hoping to really polish up my overall clean blunt technique.

My question is this: what was the last key piece that fell into place for your clean blunt? I don't need a overview of the whole trick, I just want that last breakthrough. I've collected a few already, like: "push your knees into the trick," and "your upper body should stay stationary". They've always been pretty interesting to hear. That's the sort of advice that I'm looking for here. Thanks in advance.

Try looking at your hands. In your photos and on your Blog post

they look like you are bending your arms too much and this causes two things it lowers your center of gravity and your hands get in the way when people take photos. Try extending your arms and relaxing.
