Rowing technique- wrist and arm motion, whats the best ? : LUSENET : Open-water rowing : One Thread

I row a 15 foot Heritage Dory with sliding seat in the Westport River, Massachusetts. My technique is not perfected. Sometimes the arm motion feel better if its rotated in the reverse motion than the video showed me. Is there more than one method of rowing that can work. I don't want to begin a bad habit then have to break it. Can anyone help out there ?Also, when its windy, I have had my hatchet oars hit the wave crest and wack me . Any suggestions ?
