If you want to gain the added edge in your kayaking skill then learn to roll (or eskimo roll). Especially if you are planning to hit any white water or participate in multisport events.
Kayak rolling is taught step by step in a progressive manner, until you can consistently and safely roll with a correct technique. We usually get you rolling in the first or second lesson, then it takes a few more lessons to refine your technique.
We run these sessions at a heated pool in a 1 on 1 environment or in small groups. The first lesson is usually between one to one and a half hours. Then for those, where it is appropriate, we progress to sea kayaks/multisport kayaks if that will be their future craft of choice.
