For those now standing up on the paddle board and getting the hang of the balance and motion involved in stand-up paddling, the J-stroke is a great addition! The J-stroke propels the board in a forward motion without having to switch the paddle from one side of the board to the other. Nice, right?
(If you are not at this point, don't fret. Check out our Intro to SUP article and you will be paddling in no time!)
