Kayak Rolling

Kayak Rolling

Kayaking can be alot more fun when you can easily turn your boat upright. Gaining confidence in your roll will make you a better paddler and give you an edge when taking your skills outdoors. Take advantage of this indoor-pool setting to learn, and/or fine-tune, kayak rolling techniques. Whether you are more interested in whitewater kayaking or sea kayaking; if you are a brand new paddler or you are just looking to take your skills to the next level, our instructors will work with you to ultimately make you a more skilled and confident boater. This three-evening class is designed to help progress your skills by working on bracing, edge control, different types of rolling, and more advanced skills . Not for PE credit.
