Kayaking Lake/River Roll

Beginner | Ages 11 & up

Student (11+)

We designed this course to help you develop the basic mechanical and mental skills to execute a bomb-proof roll every time!

Lake/River Roll Kayaking Class with Sierra South

If you’ve never rolled before or can’t execute your lake roll with more than a 50% success ratio, you should take this class. This is also the course to take if you are working on your off-side roll. We head to Isabella Lake for hands-on, real-time practice. If you have a decent lake roll but seem to come apart on the river, this class is also for you. We will use the same format as the Lake Roll Class but move immediately to the river. There, your watchful instructor will critique your technique. Many times, with a minor adjustment, you will be able to improve your roll and understand what to do to make it bomb-proof! Included are paddling equipment and transportation once you get to Sierra South.
