Here is your V1 stroke slight deference:

More sitting up straight dropping the T down slight light at the end to paddle stear the Va'a straight with end-side-out hook stroke.  Lower hand, coming out the Hips- cause you can on the V1 not on the V6!

Always have an open Mind and get the Concept, at the end oft the day it's all about Physics:

1. Reach/Catch                = Leverage- straight lower arm extended body from the Hips not upper back
2. Power Phase                = Fulcrum/Pivot point- (Top Hand does not move) and Lever-Effort or Force of Torque, Hand over hand Pushing down the blade with the Lower arm from the
                                         Shoulder with body sitting back up straight                                         
3. Exit/End Power phase   =Sitting back up Tall/straight and releasing Lower hand pressure on the Shaft- full blade swing (end the Stroke) and let it float out=as the canoe passes your Blade(one motion).

VA'A TECHNIQUES EXPLAINED BY GÉRARD TEIVA, TEAM OPT TRAINER
The Va'a, as we know it today, exists only since the 80's. It's the time of the creation of the Federation, the first clubs and especially the evolution of the material. It is a period of in-between where the elders have been able to inspire the new ones by sharing their knowledge, experience and techniques.

Before the creation of the first Va'a Federation, only the districts practiced this sport, finally reserved for an elite. To be part of the teams competing at the Tiurai * competitions, it was necessary to prove oneself. At that time, Teahupoo * reigned, then came the turn of Mayor Nui (Tautira). Two very different schools but sharing the same base: Huti Paari *.

HUTI PAARI
The Huti Paari is the golden rule of the ancestors of the Va'a: "Far ahead and deep. Do not shoot with the hand but with the whole body to slide the canoe "says Gerard. Adapted to the straight rays without T used in the 80s, the Huti Paari is considered the technique of speed picking par excellence. "You call your oar ahead and you're leaving," Gerard shows me the movement with a stick found on the ground, and suddenly I feel the pace. The frantic rhythm that the rower gives to the pirogue can be likened to a dance that starts slowly but never stops.

"Far ahead and deep. Do not shoot with the hand but with the whole body to slide the pirogue »
Huti Paari is a technique that is used less nowadays. Firstly because of the evolution of the material. Indeed, rowers adapt their techniques to the types of canoes or oars with which they train daily. A train in T will not require the same movements as a right train, for example. Then comes the sensation. The rowers will favor the feeling of speed, it will dictate the stroke of rowing. Hence the arrival of a new technique: the Huti Pe'e *

HUTI PE'E
Huti Pe'e keeps a steady pace. It is about attack here: the rower hits the water of his oar and this more and more quickly. This technique can vary depending on the swell since the rower adapts the pace and the stroke of oar to the water. "Pe'e means attacking the water faster by making a quick return," explains Gérard. Indeed, the canoe must be propelled forward with each stroke of oar.

"Pe'e means to propel, to throw"
Huti Paari and Huti Pe'e are techniques to maintain and / or increase speed. But these techniques could not be effective without a good boost: the Pine *.

THE PINE
For the canoe to gain speed, it must be positioned on the surface of the water. It is therefore imperative, from the start, to raise the waterline of the boat. To achieve this, there is the technique of Pine that is akin to a throttle. This technique of evacuation of Va'a makes it possible to extract the canoe of the water and thus to promote sliding. Gerard shows me how to proceed:

"We have to start short, and gradually lengthen the movement until the boat comes out of the water, and there we plant far ahead. "

Love the video of Kevin and Tupuria Clinic!  Thanks for sharing!  By any chance was there a video of them talking about the V1 stroke or any video of Kevin C-J sharing his technique?  Mahalo!
