Rolling Clinics

Learn the most effiicient self rescue going.... it's a great party trick too! 

Inuit paddler's first starting using the kayak roll as a means of survival as the waters they were paddling were extremely cold and ending up out of your kayak in the water was not an option. The roll has progressed over the years and is by far the most efficient self rescue. While working in small groups students will learn the progression of the roll and work towards a consistent and confident roll. Students should come into this course with an efficent self rescue and be comfortable with the wet exit.

In this course you will learn:

  • The history of rolling
  • Boat design & theory
  • Roll Progression
  • Detect & correct techniques

This course includes:

  • 4 hours of training
  • All necessary equipment
  • Professional instruction

Registration: $85 + HST
