4 points per side
paddle stays close to horizontal with kayak deck
Done properly this maneuver not only displays the wonderful sculling capability of the traditional paddle, it also looks stylish. The judges want to see true sculling action driving the kayak around, not one hard brace followed by a facade of short sculling strokes. 4 points per side, but you may well see a point taken off for sloppiness. On any roll the judge can deduct a point for struggling or otherwise not staying in control of the kayak despite a successful recovery.
