Without a doubt the most mysterious and confusing part of learning to kayak is the roll. For many paddlers learning to roll is an all consuming process. From dealing with holding your breath to figuring out the 360 degree rotation it is at best foreign for most folks. Then once you have mastered your technique in the pool and take it to the river the current adds another variable.
While this all sounds somewhat confusing the reality is with good beta and some practice anyone can make it down the river without a swim. Join us over the next few weeks as we not only break down the roll but provide you with real world experience and examples on how to hit that roll where it really counts…the river. We are working on our second title ‘The Combat Roll’ and will share in rich media format much of the information covered on the DVD. Check back with us over the next few weeks as we provide the most in depth resource available on the combat roll.
