The Inuit call this roll Innaqatsineq. It simply means that the kayaker lays on their back in the high brace position with palms facing skyward. During a qajaq competition judges look for the participant to keep their kayak deck at a right angle to the water. When not in competition the kayaker arches their back as much as possible to keep the kayak flat and deck parallel to the water.
- Side sculling is a resting pose that aids in capsize prevention and roll training.
A kayak roll Is the fastest type of self rescue. It also requires little upper body strength; the kayaker uses their hips to roll. If you would like to schedule a private or group class please use the Contact Us Link.
