Kayak Rolling session


The Kayak Rolling Session is designed to introduce paddlers to the technique of rolling a kayak. Wet exits and swimming can be a hassle, so it's time to learn how roll your boat back up on your own. A qualified instructor will walk you through the proper paddle technique and body mechanics. You will then be introduced to the C to C and sweep roll. This is a two hour class in our heated indoor pool.

If you need tuning on your technique, you are also welcome to join the rolling session on the scheduled dates!
