The benefit of pool classes. If you plan to paddle a kayak on the sea then you need to know how to respond quickly and appropriately to dynamic conditions. Most importantly, you need to be able to rescue yourself in the event of a capsize. Some techniques, such as the kayak roll, can be best learned in a stable environment like a pool. Kayaking in a pool offers a warm, sheltered, and controlled environment to practice rescue and rolling skills. Learning to roll your kayak in a comfortable environment allows you to focus fully on the technique and not on what might be underwater or downstream. Our kayak coaches are supportive and break the skills down into their parts so the students gain a full understanding of each kayak rolling technique.
These kayaking pool classes can help you learn how to roll both a sea kayak or a white water kayak. We've even taught people how to roll their canoe! The techniques used to recover from a capsize are very similar in all of these types of craft. Bring your preferred boat and let us help you learn to roll your kayak!
