Beginner Kayaking Roll Lessons
This kayak roll class is great for beginners not familiar with rolling, beginners looking to try kayaking, and intermediates looking for roll instruction.
Learn the various techniques for rolling a kayak in a calm environment. We also work on hand rolls and combat rolls (in current) with intermediate paddlers.
We will be hosting these clinics Wednesday evenings at Tredegar Boat Ramp (water level dependent). Arrive early in time to check in and change if you are taking instruction with us.
Participants should bring swimwear, a change of clothes, and water shoes/footwear. If you have your own kayak you are learning to paddle, we encourage you to bring that.
Kayaks, skirts, helmets, PFDs, paddles, splash tops, and instructors.
To maintain a quality experience for students and pool users, we keep a 1:3 ratio for group instruction and a maximum of 12 total paddlers in the pool at a time. All spots class/private/open should be booked in advance.
If you bring your own boat, just let us know. If you need us to provide a boat, please share with us your height and weight or preferred boat.
