We had a student in workshop last weekend who was an avid/expert "canoer". Much like anchoring arm in freestyle, she described the paddle is anchored in front of body, the paddler then moves canoe past the paddle using the whole body from the core. Paddle remains in place, "hooked in" as canoe moves forward, no lateral movement or twist of paddle. Paddle slices in quiet on entry and slides out gently at exit - no paddle flip or flick.
