For paddlers at any level capsize recoveries such as rolling and effective bracing are among the most sought after skills in paddle sports. Many of the mechanics of rolling and bracing are the same. 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 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.
For coaches who teach these skills this is a great class to expand your “toolbox” in helping individuals work through problems learning these skills.
Rolling is all about muscle memory. Developing your body awareness and breaking down the mechanics of a roll is where we will begin this course.
