That was nice Mudman!
The drone footage shows the area well and give scale to your paddle location.

I hope you left a pickup vehicle at the end.... I wouldn't want to paddle up that flow for very far!

yup... sound!

Lol just don't forget to remove any drag points like a camera waist belt 🤣 Daaaaang this forum and "no editing " faaaawk autocomplete. Typing on a phone in a hurry and now I can't even tell what I meant to type 🙃
With a narrow enough stance, everything can be compensated with fast-twitch muscles in the lower leg.

.....With feet closer together, less movement is necessary in the body to do so.  If you get too close together there is not enough leverage to right the board when it starts rocking/tilting.

This is interesting and illuminating for me (as someone with a SUP stance that is chronically too wide).

It seems you are saying a narrower stance width can allow more effective and efficient board roll corrections, while taking stance too narrow will diminish this ability and benefit. I wonder how to appreciate narrowing my stance.

Very nice. And super natural as always.  And I never thought about pulling a board over snow. Never HAD to think about it : )

Another short video. It's not an especially interesting day. But I tried some different angles and views, and went with the square format. From the raw footage you can select different aspect ratios as well as the different directions.  Lo
Looking ahead then to the side just takes two edits, and if an eagle happens to fly overhead,  you can go get that view as well. The electronic stabilization is amazing.  Only the waist belt mount is able to overcome the stabilizer,  and even then,the landscape holds level, but I wave back and forth across the screen instead,  unless I really focus on paddling "wrong" and isolate the stroke to my arms. I stuck it wayyyy out front by wrapping my waist mount around the board.  Great for working out, I'm sure. 😀 But inspired of bouncing around on the end of a flexy selfie stick, the image is stable, and not the typical GoPro shot of the paddler looming overhead.  A long board helps but a shorter one would work , just have the camera 3 feet out over the water. I am sure it would be neat for you surfers. So. 3 minutes, and just bail out at 2 minutes if you'd rather not watch me draf the board back to the car 😀. All you flatwater paddlers will like how I slide over a bunch  of branches with my flip-up kayak fin (skeg? If not steering? ).

I don't have the rights or I'd offer it for you to use, Julian. That waterway is really photogenic and there's random drone and other photographers there all the time, and my friends see the pics on Facebook and tag me. Sometimes I have the photographer's contact information if you ever want it I could check.
tarquin - cool! That was an annoying experiment in remote hosting on Google 😆  so far not great but I'm glad it wasn't a total waste of time.

And I really do like the Airline.  If my fat 275lb butt can maintain 5mph over a mile, it's not too slow an inflatable! My 18ft Bark is only a little bit faster,  like only gains a few tenths mph average. And the Airline packs up way better 😀 I just wish Starboard sold assessories and parts. I like their tie downs they put on my Airline and would buy more,  for instance.
