Learning to roll is one of the most important ways you can ensure your safety, efficiency, and enjoyment as a kayaker who is "one" with a well paddled and true sea kayak narrow enough and designed to roll.


Course Description

Bracing and Rolling A Sea Kayak - Bring Your Own Kayak and Equipment

We'll start out with confirming your kayak is well padded, and that you are comfortable upside down as a review (don't attend this lesson until these are the case). Then we'll move into hip snap and bracing drills. Once you have a sense of the separate muscle mechanics, the instructor will stand in the water and move you through the different rolling positions so you can learn by feeling how to roll.
