SESSION 1  9:00am to 11:00am

Being able to roll is very cool. Not only will you be able to get back up in 2 seconds after a capsize, it's fun! Plus, your confidence level in general will soar. 

Usually this skill is taught in three 2 hour sessions over three weekends in a pool. Some students accomplish the roll in the first session, others require longer.  What you are signing up for here is a single session only in the Olalla Lagoon. Other sessions may be offered at the discretion of the instructor(s).  

There will be no more than two students per instructor will students trading off to allow tests between attempts.

This is a 2 hour session.

Whereas in the full three session course a Basic Sea Kayaking course badge is not required, we do require this badge in this single session clinic.
