Learn to Roll a Kayak!
Winter is the best time to learn to roll a kayak– in the security and warmth of an indoor swimming pool!
Pool Rolling for 1st Timers
for total beginners or those who have not ever taken a rolling class; this class usually only needs to be taken once. Work toward getting in and out of your boat in a wet-exit and building a powerful hip-snap. First Timers will also cover T-rescues, and an intro to paddle position if time allows. Equipment is included.
For students who have completed the First Timers class and feel comfortable wet exiting. In this class we break down the steps to your kayak roll, focusing on paddle and body position and getting plenty of practice with the support of an experienced instructor. Those paddlers who are having roll- issues can also benefit from the practice and guidance of an instructor in the 2+ class. Students may take this class multiple times. Each time the instructor will teach to your specific level. Equipment is included.
Pool Rolling for Youth
Paddlers 9 to 17 years.
Bring your own equipment and work by yourself or with other friendly Open Roll participants.
