Kayak Roll 

KayakRoll: A kayak roll (often referred to as an Eskimo roll) is the act of righting a capsized kayak by use of body motion and/or a paddle.  (wikipedia)

Why do you need to learn the roll?
You really don’t need that knowledge!
Until you get into a situation where you do!
You can save your life or your companions, as you can stay in your kayak and be on the surface again in 1 second after a capsize. and then leave the danger zone or help others.
In this workshop I will only pay attention to you, as we will perfect and practice your personal technique and movements.
For safety reasons, I work with max. 2 people.
Unfortunately, experience shows that in Hungary kayakers are not welcome in the swimming pool, so we do courses outdoors.

For Dates click on the workshop below.

We start the theoretical part on land and then move on to the practice very soon. First  learn some basic movements on land. After warming up your body properly, we try these movements on the water. First with a diving mask, then with a nose clip, and later without it.
The Kayak Rolling Course is 6 hours long , at least 60% of this we spent in water.
The Eskimo roll can be mastered by anyone, but the learning time varies from individual to individual. 
There are some who also need 2-3 days of exercise. However, with a little perseverance, they will succeed.
Skills to help to master the Eskimo roll:
  • if you feel comfortable underwater as well
  • good movement coordination
  • good sense of balance
  • flexibility
  • rowing experience and confident, skillful application of sea kayak course techniques
The fee for the workshop: 100 euros / person
I’ll help to practice and it will roll! Come on!

SAFETY IS the most important to us!

Safety conditions for participating in tours:
  • swim knowledge: the buoyancy aid holds You at the surface of the water, but because it’s about watersport, the minimum swim ability is expected from the participants. 
  • zero alcohol consumption during the day – no one can drink alcohol or be under the influence of drugs. Anyone who breaks this rules has to face the consequences, surely he will not get into kayaks that day. In the case of a multi-day tour, this may also result for the participant being deprived of the opportunity to continue and complete the tour. In the evening, minimal alcohol consumption is allowed in the camp!

🇭🇺 Ebben a kisvideóban legalább 50 óra gyakorlás van. Vízben lenni, kajakban maradni, ott fejjel lefelé lógni. Betájolni merre van a fent és a lent, a jobb és a bal. Megszokni, hogy nem veszel levegőt, nem látsz és hogy nem megy főleg mindennek ellenére is bizakodva, újra és újra próbálni. Ezt lesz a pénteki program is a délutáni Eszkimó workshopon a Balcsin. Épp van még két helyünk. Ugorj be! (Link hozzászólásban.)🇬🇧 There are at least 50 hours of practice in this little video. Being in the water, staying in a kayak, hanging there upside down. Find out where the top and bottom are, the right and the left. Getting used to the fact that you can't breathe, you can't see, and that it doesn't work right away... but above all, despite everything, trying again and again with hope. This will also be the Friday program at the afternoon Eskimo workshop in Balcsin. We only have two spots left. Jump in!

🇬🇧András did the first kayakroll workshop at @kayakcrazy-eu last year. After that he already managed to do the roll alone, but now he come back to refresh the skills and let to correct the small mistakes he still made, like you can see at the first rolls, he still pulled the paddle to deep, not to get the optimal stroke on the surface.András tavaly volt az első eszkimóka workshopon a @kayakcrazy-eu-nál. Utána már sikerült egyedül megcsinálnia, de most visszajött, hogy felfrissítse a technikát, és hagyja, hogy kijavítsuk a még elkövetett apró hibákat. Ahogy az első eszkimóknál is látszik, még mindig mélyre húzta a lapátot, nem optimális támaszt érjen el a felszínen. ... See MoreSee Less
