Kayak Roll Clinic

Kayak Roll Clinic

Program Description

Looking to master the kayak roll or perfect your technique? Kayak Roll Clinics can be the perfect opportunity to fine-tune your kayak skills. Each roll session is customized to your specific wants and needs. As in most sports, practice is key! Your instructor will work with you to achieve your personal goals.

The kayak roll sessions offer a great opportunity to build your confidence, and practice a number of skills including strokes, bracing, edging, and the kayak Roll. Learn at your own pace with personalized assistance from friendly Sundance instructors!

Make a day of it! Roll practice requires concentration and uses a lot of energy. The best way to learn the kayak roll is to take frequent breaks when practicing to let the mind and body relax. This is why the Sundance roll clinic is included as part of a half-day of private instruction. This allows you to work on the roll as much as you like, and get some paddling in too.  Our instructors can customize your day to maximize your experience.

Don’t Take Our Word For It. Hear What Our Guests Have To Say!

My family loved every moment of our week long kayaking school. Not only did the wonderful and fun guides teach us how to kayak and roll, but we also established friendships and memories that I know will last for a lifetime. Thank you, Sundance! We can’t wait for our next trip.

In my years as a river guide and in my own trials at learning to kayak I have seen many go through the progression and take up a paddle. But learning how to kayak is not easy and can involve overcoming some very innate fears. Of all the teachers I have encountered none have so effectively turned that fear into fun as Sundance Kayak School.

The experience was the highlight trip of my summer. I had been “making” it down the river, but that’s it. I felt like I was kayaking a bunch, but reached a point that I wasn’t getting any better. The instruction I received from your great group of instructors has been so helpful. They gave me so many techniques/paddle strokes to work on and they helped me with the bad habits I had developed. There wasn’t a single instructor that I didn’t think was great and enjoyable to be around, both on and off the water.

The guides and others created a FUN and safe environment that allowed me to get out of my comfort zone.  JR’s teaching is a combination of silly, serious and encompassed in a positive energy and a can-do spirit.

My instructors make maneuvering through challenging cross currents look effortless, but I have learned that there are no short cuts to doing so myself. Every time I enter a new rapid, I know a community of paddlers supports me.

I recently spent a week on the Rogue River with Lori and JR from Sundance Kayaking school and it was AMAZING!!!! I’m looking forward to going on another kayaking adventure soon and hope to be able to learn more from them again!
