Many kayakers have been working on their pool rolls over the winter. It is good to practice pool rolls, but unfortunately, rolling in a combat situation can be much more difficult. Therefore, as we are getting closer to boating season, it is a great idea to start simulating combat rolls in the pool. This video demonstrates a number of drills that simulate the less ideal rolling conditions that we find on a river. It is an excerpt from Anybody Can Kayak: Rolling. More information about the full length DVD can be found at www.anybodycankayak.com.
