ESKIMO-ROLL COURSE

Eskimo roll is the skill of righting a capsizedkayak by use of body motion and/or a paddle.
Flipping over in a kayak is just part of the game and can actually be fun, but there are other times when being upside down in a kayak can be dangerous.
The roll is an essential for paddlers who attempt serious whitewater, as exiting the boat and swimming gives the paddler less maneuverability and control, and thus leaves him/her more exposed than in the boat.

PREREQUISITES: Know to swim, basic technique of paddling.
REQUIRED PERSONAL EQUIPMENT: Identity card, swimsuit, paddling thermal wear & enthusiasm.
INCLUDED:   Insurance, qualified instructor & kayaking equipment (kayak, paddle, lifejacket,…)
