DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water! Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, & carpooling directions.)
Intermediate WW Kayak Class – Rolling in Current, part 2 Saturday June 15th – Scudder’s, conditions permitting.
This Class is called Part 2 as Ross Northrop is teaching this subject on June 9. The classes will be complementary. Sign up for both and get really good!
Rolling on a river can be harder than in a pool for various reasons, but it can sometimes be easier. We will look at rolling in a way that uses the current to our advantage.
This intermediate class is for: –Kayakers who have a reliable roll in the pool. –Kayakers who would like to improve their river roll, or learn to use current for rolling. –Kayakers who want to build confidence so they’ll surf more. –Kayakers who are interested in developing their roll in both directions. A second side roll will add to the experience but is not a requirement. –Participants must be members of the WTC, and we’ll be signing various waivers.
The venue will have good eddy service and easy assisted recovery. We plan to have enough support so that no one will need to pull the cord! Required gear will be weather dependent. Most likely you will need a dry top. Class size will be determined by the number of assistants. Please sign up to help! This class will be held in the gentler water below the Scudders wave, not in the wave itself. It there’s interest we can surf the wave too.
These Rolling in Current classes will be fun so don’t miss out!
