My issue with learning the back deck has been real time application. I managed to get the technique early on but I never remember to use the damn thing when I get flipped. Halfway though setting up for a C2C I think, crap, that would have been a good time to do the back deck. My notion would be to intentionally use it more while surfing since that seems the best place to continually practice using the roll. Any other advice on getting it incorporated into paddling?

On the river, I can abandon who I am and what I've done. However brief it lasts, while on the river I am nothing important and everything insignificant. I am flotsam, and happy to be so.

Hey Stephen, nice video.

Any extra advice for off side? I think my hip snap is what gets discombobulated in all my off sides giving me usually a 50/50 on getting right. Maybe you've got sumthin extra to add...
