This course is designed to help those who have a current roll however struggle putting it together in rough or moving water. Many of us spend hours practicing our kayak rolls in flat water to develop solid muscle memory however it all seems to fall apart in a more dynamic environment. 

Your instructor, James Manke, works first on reinstilling the physics of the roll and the group progressively moves from flat to rough water throughout the course. Each discipline throughout the course will include building blocks and tools to help you progress as a rough water paddler.
