Ok, I realize I am opening myself up to some serious abuse, but here goes:
Did a solo run of Upeer Clear creek (Kermits to the junction) a few days back...no need for any scolding for paddling solo; get enough from my wife. Anyway, I was thinking too hard about double-knife and not paying attention...flipped in ejector. Water was super fast, and it was less than pleasurable being slammed against rock after rock upside down. I had an extremely hard time setting up my roll, as my paddle, head, etc. kept slamming on rocks. Thankfully, I was able to roll up just before DK.
So it got me thinking that I obviously do not have the right technique for rolling in shallower, fast water (duh, really?). Anybody have any good tips on managing your paddle and rolling while being bludgeoned? I'll aprreciate any sarcastic remarks as well...
cheers, -bruised and battered
