KAYAK ROLLING - Whitewater Series

Aug 08th 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Eastwood Metropark Lake

August 1, 8, 15 -- 2017

This three week whitewater series will focus on the kayak roll.  Being able to roll is not only a very useful tool for whitewater boaters to have, but it is also a lot of fun.  Individual roll lessons will be offered as well on a limited basis. 

Intro to Rolling - During the first class you will learn how to get in and out of your kayak, perform wet exits, hip snaps, learn body positioning, and t-rescues.  You will become more comfortable with flipping over and being upsidedown.  This group class teaches you how to perform the different components of the roll, before introducing the paddle.   This class meets at 5:30.

Kayak Rolling – Once you have the basics mastered you will be ready to tackle the roll itself.  You will receive one on one instruction during the second and third classes where you will work specifically on your rolling technique.   Individual roll lessons will be offered as well on a limited basis.
