This Is The Roll

This Is The Roll - DVD

By Justine Curgenven

From the multiple award-winning filmmaker, Justine Curgenven, who brought you the This Is The Sea series comes the most comprehensive DVD yet on learning the kayak roll! This Is The Roll DVD is aimed at anyone trying to learn their first roll, people wanting to get a bombproof roll & those wanting to learn forward finishing rolls.

Join Cheri Perry & Turner Wilson - widely known for their excellent teaching style, and their unique progressions that they have developed over years of teaching - as they walk you through each important maneuver.

The DVD contains step-by-step instruction on how to do 3 different rolls – the standard Greenland roll, the reverse sweep roll & the storm roll. Cheri & Turner believe these 3 rolls on both sides will allow paddlers to recover from a capsize in real conditions no matter how you are knocked over.

Length: 2.5 hours

This DVD should be in every kayaker's library! 

We now maintain a full stock of Kari-Tek Easy Load Roof Racks (ELRR) and accessories. Click here for more information, or contact us for details.
