Be ready to roll when you need it. Here is a short video from when I broke my paddle while using it to protect my face from a rock. And one from my Situational Rolling and Bracing classes.

Roll Instruction

I am proud to say that roll instruction is one of my specialties. Beyond teaching at least 100 students their FIRST roll, I have enjoyed refining many existing rolls to be more efficient in rough water. I am available for private or group classes. Or look for my custom Situational Rolling and Bracing class on the schedule.
