I get the most out of each paddle making it a compound movement rather than quantity of strokes where some dudes just slap at the water like they were doing a broked doggie paddle. Not sexy.
    Is that a 45 degree angle, and not a 47 1/2 degree angle?

    DawnpatrolSUP you need to pull your head in.

    It's actually 44.5846741 degrees, to be exact on the pull towards center then 45.3901253 on the kick out for the follow-through. Thought I'd keep it simple with rounding to 2 digits but there you go!
