Having trouble with your roll - or have you 'lost' it all together? This two day course is ideal for you. Progressing at your own pace, our coaches will assess your roll and design a programme to consolidate and refine your technique. Whatever your starting point, one day spent in the pool and a second out on the water will move you towards a confident reliable roll.
The aim is to help unlock the kayak roll and that you'll leave with a confident reliable pool roll.
* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.
What to Expect
There'll be a mix of practical sessions, physical and mental preparation. You'll start each session with a series of exercises to increase your flexibility and warm you up before starting work in our heated pool. You'll progress outdoors as when we decide that this progression will be of benefit to you. We'll assess your needs and coach you individually, and there'll be plenty of opportunity to review video footage of your progress.
You should be able to perform a confident capsize and have rolled before.
The ability to roll can unlock another level in your paddling. Let us help you to solve this problem holding you back.
We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
Our pool is equipped with kayaks of various sizes and shapes. You may wish to bring your own wetsuit, spraydeck, paddle etc, but we provide you with all of these. You'll find it useful to bring along a nose clip to ease the sinuses from continuous immersion.
Rolling can be tiring, so being fit will help you get the most from the course. Flexibility is another key factor in success so increasing your flexibility and mobility well ahead of the course will help to ensure success.
