      The Kayak Roll

      Rolling a kayak is an essential skill for any serious paddler. It is considered the safest form of a rescue, because it involves only one person, can be done in just a few seconds, and keeps you inside the kayak, protected from rocks, cold water and other hazards.

      The complete course consists of a 1-hour "Classroom" and a 3-hour "Pool" lesson and kayak demo.

      In this 4hr class, your instructor will lead you through a series of steps to build muscle memory, while using the proper technique to safely and effortlessly roll the kayak upright.

      Here's a few things you'll learn:

      • 4 Myths to an effortless roll
      • 5 preventative measures to keep you from flipping
      • 7 easy drills you can practice to build muscle memory
      • 3 roll variations that work with different boats & body-types, and which conditions they work best
      • 7 advanced drills to take your pool roll to a reliable river "combat" roll

      Although not required for the Intro to Whitewater Clinic, students who complete this class will have a more rewarding experience when pursuing more challenging water.  Anyone considering class III whitewater, expedition-style sea kayaking, or leading a group of paddlers, should master this essential skill.

      The class will be taught using whitewater kayaks only, although an exception will be made if you own your own sea kayak.

      Payment:  A $25 non-refundable deposit is needed to reserve your spot in class. Classes are booked on a first-paid, first-reserved basis, so send in your deposit today!

      Cost: 80.25
