2021 Session announcement : This session will be on hold until Covid Social distancing is no longer needed. Reason for this decision - we physically need to hold onto you during your training.
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
