Rolling Clinics with Helen Wilson
Rolling – This is a multi-level class for those wanting to learn a
first roll, learn an other side roll or get a more consistent roll.
For those interested in Greenland style rolling; layback, forward
finish, norsaq and hand rolls can also be covered. The class lasts two
to three hours. Full immersion gear is required, including a hood. You may
also want to bring a nose clip and/or earplugs. Maximum number of
students: 6. For more information, or to register, e-mail Helen at email@example.com.
“Combat” Rolling – This class is for those with a “pool” or “flat
water” roll who want to try using it in a more dynamic setting. We’ll
begin by looking at our rolls and cleaning up any inconsistencies.
Then we’ll move these rolls into a gentle surf zone and become more
comfortable rolling in both surf and with obstacles that are often
present in a “combat” situation (such as sand or rocks). The class
lasts two to three hours. Full immersion gear and helmets are required.
Pre-requisite: a flat water roll at least 75 percent of the time.
Maximum number of students: 6. For more information or to register, e-mail Helen at firstname.lastname@example.org.
