Alright ladies (and anyone who feels like helping):
I'm starting to get really annoyed, and to feel like I'm completely incompetant, but I can not bow stall in flat water to save my life. I have an older small ZG, I'm right in the middle of the weight range for it, I have it outfitted well to where I'm snug... I have worked a lot on edge control, and can paddle on edge for forever, and I'm fairly strong (for a girl
), so I don't quite know what I'm missing at this point, but I'm going crazy over this. If I sort of give a half serious attempt, I get close, but not ever vertical. If I go all out, I get close again, but depending on the atttempt, forget about my edges and go flat, fall flat on my face, or end up in this strange stuck position with my paddle buried underneath me and I'm too far sunk to brace.
I'm starting to feel pretty stupid... though the people on the lake seem to enjoy watching me try to drown myself/dislocate my shoulder...
I know people can do this, so I just don't know what I'm missing.
