Narrative: We will learn the most reliable self assisted reentry technique for kayaking. That is reentry an roll with paddle float. No doubt if you have no rolling experience, you may find this daunting. Worry not! You will find success in 1 session. After learning to reenter & roll up (with paddle float) , we'll investigate an extension of that to empty the water from the boat.
Please bring a paddle float.
