Overview 

Struggling with your kayak roll or feel like you’ve lost the skill? Our two-day course offers personalized coaching to address exactly these challenges.

You’ll begin with an assessment of your current roll by our expert coaches, who will then tailor a programme specifically for your needs. We’ll use various venues suitable to your skill level, from our heated pool to local lakes and rivers, to ensure a comfortable and effective learning environment.

The goal of this course is to unlock your kayak roll, helping you to leave with a confident and reliable pool roll. Through practical sessions, we’ll work on building and solidifying your roll, identifying strengths and weaknesses, and providing you with a personal action plan. We’ll even teach you methods to coach yourself once the course is over, using suitable venues like our heated pool or local water bodies.

What To Expect

There’ll be a mix of practical sessions aimed at building and solidifying the roll you already have. This will include identifying strengths and weaknesses, a personal action plan, and methods to coach yourself away from us. We’ll use venues like our heated swimming pool and lake/rivers, as and when appropriate.

Experience Required 

You should be able to perform a confident capsize and have rolled before.

How Should I Prepare? 

Rolling can be tiring, so being fit will help you get the most from the course. Flexibility is another key factor in success so increasing your flexibility and mobility well ahead of the course will help to ensure success.

What Kit Should I Bring?

Our pool is equipped with kayaks of various sizes and shapes. You may wish to bring your own wetsuit, spraydeck, paddle etc, but we provide you with all of these. You’ll find it useful to bring along a nose clip to ease the sinuses from continuous immersion.
