Do I paddle with the SUP blade
angle forward or backward?

When most people get on a paddle board for the first time, they always seem to grab the paddle backwards. They grab it such that the angle on the blade carves back towards them. The proper way is exactly the opposite. You want the paddle to angle away from you to the front. It has something to do with the bend and recoil that this forward angle creates.
