I can't believe the French sometimes. Yet again, I can't believe someone was booing EJ either. Like him or not, he still gets it done when it has to get done, and against boaters half his age or more.
One thing to note, and I mean take serious note all you playboaters... EJ's roots are in Slalom boating. What does that mean? It means he's more efficient in his technique with his paddle strokes. It means he gets himself positioned much more rapidly than someone who one who does a little river running and lots of hole riding.
You can manuver with 1 to 2 strokes to do something that takes a non-racing training boater 4 or 5 strokes. It all comes down to fundamentals and training hard, Which he has and does, consistantly.
How many of you playboaters know the following types of strokes;
- Static Duffek
- Sculling Bow Draw
- Active Bow Draw
- Hip Draw
Just food for thought....
