I have been paddling w/w kayaks for about 5 years and have several boats creek/playboat and one old school boat. I can roll most of the time with no problem.<br /> This past winter I bought my first touring boat Necky arluk IV and have paddled probably 300 miles total.<br />
I also carved a G/P and I really like it though I’m not sure if it suits my boat.
I finally got around to working on my roll this summer but have found doing my normal roll in the necky I hit the what seems very high backdeck really hard when I lay back. I can roll with a c to c reaching out to the side but I seem to be really working hard to get the boat up.
Any advice as to how to modify my roll/paddle for this boat? Also would there be a big difference if I had a boat that was more suited to the g/p?
