Timing and Efficiency
There is a good game on OCpaddler.com called 40 strokes, where the goal is to go as far as possible with 40 strokes using the waves. It teaches you timing and to use your strokes as efficiently as possible (although it is limited to two dimensions, in real life, going left and right can make a big difference). I have been able to get a score of just over 1900 but have not been able to get over 2000 as some others have. For tips, read some of the comments posted.
