The kneeling position allows you to get back to dry land when the wind is blowing offshore.
1// Maintaining your balance, with your paddle in hand, transition from standing to kneeling at the center of the board.
2// Stabilize yourself on the board while keeping a solid grip on your paddle.
3// Once you feel secure, lift the paddle in both hands and prepare to stroke.
4// Hold the paddle vertically and grip it with both hands at the middle of the shaft.
5// Move your hands about 18" apart.
6// Begin to paddle, rotating sides of the board. Depending on the size of your board, you may have to switch sides frequently. Smaller boards tend to shift direction more quickly.
