Re: Eskimo roll instructo

If you lived in the San Francisco Bay Region, I could give you names of good roll instructors. Since you live in San Antonio, the best I can do is highly recommend the video "The Kayak Roll",, telephone 888-259-5805. No matter who your instructor turns out to be, this video (available in DVD) is an excellent place to start.

Derek Hutchinson was paraphrased to say that a good roll is an indication of excellent kayaking skill. NEEDING to roll is an indication of insufficient kayaking skill.

I think it is an essential skill, which I have yet to perfect. Good luck to you.
