*Due to the Coronavirus this class is postponed*

If your capsize, re-entry rescue, and bracing skills are good but your other kayak lessons didn't include rolling, or you used to be able to roll but lost it, this is the lesson for you. This kayak rolling lesson is for both whitewater and sea kayakers.

For sea kayakers, if your bracing and hip snap need work, or it takes you more than eight strokes to make a circle, we recommend taking our SK 101 & 102 or SK111 & 115 courses instead.

NOTE: This is not a substitute for learning how to wet-exit (as some You-Tube fans believe).

    If you are bringing your own kayak, please let us know which model you will bring when the sign-up form to the right prompts you.
