The Eskimo roll is often mind over matter and not being confident in your roll can be a major deterrent for kayakers. We have a simple, progressive way of teaching the roll, which will build confidence and increase your enjoyment of kayaking. Part of this involves helping you select and perfect the type of roll suited to you.

Who this course is suited to: Those who have not yet got their roll, those wanting to refresh their rolling skills, or look at alternative roll types.
