Rolling a kayak improves your confidence.

The kayak roll is one of the more tricky maneuvers to master, and may take regular training sessions. Rolling will become a very important part to advancing your kayaking skills. We understand paddlers fears or concerns and have a patient style to improving your skills.

This course is great for improving your confidence and support strokes highlighting a stable paddling position. The rolling technique can be a big leap in your learning, it is important you understand the actions required for a good effective roll, without putting strain on your body.

We do not say you will roll on the day, as all paddlers learn at their own pace.
