Elbow and Straight Jacket Rolls!
At the pool session last week, I decided to try these two new (for me) Greenland-style rolls (no... I'm not talking about sushi... that would be gross). Luckily Ben was there to film it when I unexpectedly surfaced. This little boat is a magical rolling machine!
Watch Cheri Perry do it here (under "Rolls with no paddle"). I didn't realize that I could extend my left arm out at the end. It also looks like I should tuck a bit more at the beginning. Yay for movies!
Watch Cheri Perry do it here (under "Rolls with no paddle"). I crossed my arms a little differently than she does, and I probably need a bit more snap at the end. But yay for managing to get up in the first place!

This is a blog about exploring the outdoors (mostly by kayak), traveling, trip planning, and coastal engineering. It currently focuses on kayaking in the Netherlands and Belgium, but previous posts cover Upstate New York, California, and much more. See the Complete List of Blog Posts for a history of the site.
