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.

Participant should have grasped the concepts of edging, bracing, and boat control prior to this session - as this is very helpful for advancement.

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 can 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

Initial class - $80/per person
