A better hand position for greater speed in the water. Who knew?
Good tip! Better the the kooky webbed glove
Interesting. I'll try to keep my fingers apart other than when its so cold I couldn't put them together if I tried.
I find that it also seems to help with arthritis by balancing the strength amongst my fingers. My wrists and forearms are better off for it, too. Wow, if that's not a "getting old" comment....sheesh. Excuse me, I have to go yell at some kids to get off my lawn.
I use two fingers.
welcome to the club weedmon
I tested this theory this morn and realized that my fingers are *always* slightly spread b/c it's impossible to keep them together in the cold water. The colder it gets, though, the further apart they get, which sounds like a bad thing--Article says the gap should only be .2x-.4x the diameter of your fingers. That's not very spread. And, of course, after a couple of hours ###### of winter, they're just deformed useless claws. I've actually popped up on my board by pushing w/my knuckles rather than the palm of my hand.
some are cuppers, and some relax the fingers. which are you?
Has anyone tried the Live Long and Prosper technique? That might work.
@friscohio, I see what you did there.
Na Nu Na Nu.
