-Many paddlers tape pads into their ski's buckets. A pad can help create a better angle and therefore more leverage at the catch, as well as provide comfort and/or a more snug fit which can increase boat control.

-In general, paddle length depends on torso length when sitting in your boat. At the catch, with the blade fully submerged, you want your upper hand at about forehead height. Get a friend to watch you and help you adjust your length. ​As a more advanced technique ​after you have a solid stroke and catch, you can also change your paddle length mid-run. ​If you are getting tiredshorten the paddle. If you are feeling stronglengthen the paddle. ​Paddlers who do this practice ​to make it as quick and foolproof as possibleYou may want to experiment with marks on your paddle that you can see more easily. +In general, paddle length depends on torso length when sitting in your boat.
