When rowing two-man kayaks, we often encounter this phenomenon: the person behind thinks the person in front is too slow or too lazy, while the person in front constantly suspects the person behind is lazy, which leads to arguments. Due to the water resistance and double kayaking is a front and back seat, so there is some difficulty incooperation, it is very test the degree of understanding between the two people. In addition to improving the level of understanding, how to double canoeing division of labor, so that happy play?
A good division of labor is an important prerequisite for good two-man kayaking. Generally speaking, the front oar controls the frequency, and the back oar controls the direction of the boat, fine-tuning the direction at any time.
For the fore-rowers, it is important to row rhythmically, alternating from left to right. And keep an eye out for the waterways ahead. When you see a situation in front of you, communicate with the backrower, don't change the speed and rhythm suddenly, to avoid backrower's reaction time caused by the backrower paddle, more row more disorderly behavior.
For the backrower, it's all about following the forward rower and adjusting your stroke to the forward rower's rhythm. For the direction of the control, the back oar in the control of the strength of the comparative advantage, but still need two people to complete.
Direction control is an important part of many two-man kayaks because is easy to make chaos. Single canoeing direction control methods are many, but the ways of effective control direction for two-man kayaking are mainly three: center of gravity control; Stern rudder control; Sweep oar control.
Center of Gravity Control - requires 2 people. If the direction is shifted to the left, it needs to be adjusted to the right. In this case, two people shift their center of gravity to the left at the same time, while rowing the left oar normally, the ship naturally adjusts to the right. The advantage of this approach is its simplicity. There is no need to disturb the rhythm at all. Small obstacles in front can be circumnaviated through the center of gravity adjustment for 1-2 times.
Rudder Control - require backrower. When turning, backrower should place the oar behind the boat over there to form a rudder. It is important to note that when placing the oar into water, the rear hand should be straight and the oar pages placed at right angles. This method is very effective for correcting deviation, but the disadvantage is that it will slow down the speed.
Sweep Control - two man or singel. If you want the boat to correct the deviation to the right, you only need to use the method of sweeping the oar to draw a half arc when rowing the left oar. This method does not affect the speed and frequency, is one of the most effective two-man kayaking.
Tow-man kayaking is in the basic skills to master the premise, improve the communication degree of 2 oarsmen and trust, can be successfully completed. Because of the need for communication and trust, kayaking this beneficial and interesting exercise is the best way to increase parent-child relationship, romantic relationship, friendship, and is also a bridge to increase trust and communication.
