How to do a flatwater loop

Bennett Smith here, with my first kayak tutorial video! I tried to keep it simple and easy to understand.

Remember these key tips while performing the loop:
1. Once in the bow stall, reach down towards the river bottom and do ONE BIG PULL with your paddle!
2.While pulling, drive your feet down and reach for the sky. Like you are trying to jump off of the river bottom.
3. Don’t forget to REACH TOWARDS THE SKY!
4.Throw the loop as hard as you can.
5. After throwing forwards, whip back as hard a possible.
6.The key to this trick is repetition and practice!

And that is how one performs a still-water front flip in a small boat!
See ya on the water!
