Learning how to Roll a kayak

Built for the more advanced paddler, the roll is a form of self rescue. This 3 hour session will have a classroom setting prior to getting on the water. The intention for this session is to grasp the dynamics – the kayak, the body, and blade – how they all move through the water, and working with the physics of water. A solid roll doesn’t happen easily for everyone and you may not be successful after the first session. Understanding this, I will also offer an additional follow up class for $50 (2 hour max).  We shall focus on these main topics:

  • Understanding the roll

  • Defining the different types of rolls – c to c, sweep, extended paddle, Eskimo

  • Paddle position for each of the types

  • Body mechanics – the lower separates from the upper body

  • Putting it all together

  • What helps – flexibility, working on ‘hip snaps’, practice, paddle float

Location for this class will be contained within a small quiet lake – locally. This may be at Yahr park, Little Cedar Lake, Random Lake, or Lake Michigan. You will be notified of location once registered.  Sea kayak, paddle, and PFD can be made available (and included in the price), should you need to use our gear.

 

Once you click on the ‘Add to cart’, you will be redirected to a registration page to complete.

Initial class $75

Initial plus additional 2 hour future class $125
