  1. Your leg drive and hip position triggers much more boat roll (on flat water) that pretty much every other HP padder out there. What makes your stroke different? Why don’t other boats roll as much as yours?


  2. Would your aggressive technique be transferable to ordinary paddlers looking of fun and exercise or should we stick to lower strokes to remain stable and avoid injuries


  3. You´ve said on many occasions that you pad your skis. What sort of paddling do you use that doesn´t interfere with your very dramatic rotation? Also: do you kick so hard that your back is pressed agianst the bucket or do you use the foot straps to pull creating a push/pull force pair?


  4. I have tested the Think Uno Max only once on flat water. To me it seemed fairly stable – most primary, compared to other racing SS. If Think had come up with a ski with a little narrower and rounder water line, would you not be even faster?


  5. Hi Sean,
    Congratulations on your great summer of racing so far. I’ve got two questions. First, what angle do you set your paddle at?
    What kind of speeds would you average during your flat water training for a steady pace 10 km?
