16 Sculling with the Paddle held Under the Kayak

Of the sculling rolls going all the way around I think this is the easiest. I got a very low volume qajaq so I can easily reach around and then it helps me to tuck low over the foredeck. There isn't much to tell which is new to this roll, If you can do the sculling over the foredeck this is the same, just remember to push with your leading hand and have a wide stroke and an aggressive blade angle. 

Judges note:
It's ok to extend your paddle as much or as little as you like.
