Slow Rolls

This url, from Boatertalk, has very good advice about learning the roll.

Warm Water Good
Hard to roll slow when the water is cold. I think trying to teach or learn the roll in cold water would be difficult.

You may be right.
Which is interesting since NOC is on the Nantahala, which is dam released from the bottom of the dam. I have paddled the Nantahala and it is quite cold.

Not the Nanty
NOC teaches the roll instruction over at Lake Fontana. Much warmer.


Excellent advice!

So a reentry & roll should be easier than a roll?


Gves me ideas for how to hep students learn to get boat feel and command. Thats the difference betwen being a padler and being cargo.
