Coaches: Helen and Mark are both very accomplished paddlers and frequent guest coaches at symposiums and kayaking events across the US, Europe and the rest of the world. They are based out of California, US where they offer coaching and trips via Greenland or Bust.

Cost: Each session cost £60 and if you choose to book two sessions you receive a £20 discount and only pay £100.
You also have the option to purchase a copy of the DVD “Simplifying The Roll with Helen Wilson" at the reduced price of £15 at the time you book your session.

Overview: This class is for those working on a beginning roll, an other-side roll or cleaning up an existing roll. The class will move through a steady progression of on-land exercises, in-water activities as well as in-kayak practice and will include techniques such as the Balance Brace, the Standard Roll and/or the Butterfly Roll. The techniques examined can be used with any type of paddle and any type of kayak. Participants will receive individualised coaching during the class, and a personalised action plan at the end.

Prerequisites: Ideal for beginner and intermediate paddlers wishing to improve their skills base.

Equipment: There will be a demo fleet of Sea Kayaking UKkayaks and Lendal paddles available for the sessions and must be booked in advance. If you have not booked a kayak and paddle for your session you must bring your own equipment. There will also be a selection of Greenland paddles available for participants to try and experiment with. The sessions are based outside but in slightly heated and chlorinated pool water so full immersion gear is required.

Booking: For more information or to register, please contact Mattias Altin on mattias_altin @ hotmail.com or PM /e-mail Mark

Course status update.

Places are filling up for both days.

Please note that these classes are ideal for anyone wanting to learn how to roll, improve their roll or advance their roll.

You don't need a tulik, norsaq, avataq or an akuilisaq but you may get to learn about these things during the class.

Please p.m or e-mail Mark if you are interesting in attending.

All the best :-)
