Kayak Rolling Class

This class focuses on breaking down the kayak roll. We start with controlling the kayak with your body by using your hips, knees and core, then add sweeping the paddle to achieve a successful roll . Finally, we put all the pieces together and fine tune things 1-on-1 with the assistance of the instructor.

​Rolling is easy to do physically, but it is difficult to learn initially. Some people will achieve a working roll by the end of this class, but most people won’t learn the roll in their first class. Rolling requires practice to maintain the skill, so learning to roll is just the beginning. Plan to attend practice sessions after your class.

Learning to roll is best attempted by kayakers with experience in wet exits, sculling and bracing, in a well fitted Sea Kayak or White Water Kayak.

The Kayak Rolling Class is limited to 6 students
