Combat Rolling and Bracing

Kayak capsize recoveries such as rolling, and solid effective bracing are among the most sought after skills in paddle sports. In our Combat Kayak Rolling class, we will take your flat water skills and apply them to moving water. Many of the mechanics of kayak rolling and bracing are the same and you will learn to apply the correct technique in a dynamic environment. At Body Boat Blade we’ve developed an effective progression to get students to learn and be successful at these highly desired kayaking skills. In this sea kayak class we will spend time developing a solid understanding of what your body needs to do in order to recover from an off-balanced position whether it is slight or a complete capsize. We will help you develop solid foundations for successful practice. This is a fun and active class, prepare to get wet!
