Rolling Focused Option for NH AMC Sea Kayak Training and Paddling Practice - Pool.

Recommended Posts

I will be accepting TWO sea kayak students who really want to learn to roll. Intended for the kayaker who still wants someone standing next to them as they learn to roll. Part of each session will be spent learning to roll, the rest of the session students will work on assisted and self rescue skills with the NH AMC Sea Kayak Training and Paddling Practice general class.

Rolling focused students must commit to attend all five Saturday evening 6:30pm-8:00pm practice sessions at the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Nashua in New Hampshire.


  • Saturday, March 11 Nashua 6:30-8:00
  • Saturday, March 18 Nashua 6:30-8:00
  • Saturday, March 25 Nashua 6:30-8:00
  • no session April 2
  • Saturday April 8 Nashua 6:30-8:00
  • Saturday April 15 Nashua 6:30-8:00 [Easter weekend]

Rolling focused students will need to bring a sea kayak, neoprene spray skirt, PFD, helmet, paddle (European or Greenland style), and a desire to repeatedly capsize. All equipment must be clean (hosed down at home) to keep the indoor pool area clean. Kayaker's nose plugs (has a cord unlike swimmer's nose plugs) and goggles or swim mask are also strongly suggested.

The rolling instruction is offered on a “pay if forward” basis. However access to the pool sessions is $80 paid via the Merrimack Valley Paddlers white water group.

All participants will be required to sign the AMC waiver.

If you want to be a “Rolling Focused” student, go to this Meetup page, scroll down to “join the conversation” post “I want to ROLL!” then register for NH AMC Sea Kayak Training and Paddling Practice as usual.

The two students who show up March 11th with the oldest “I want to ROLL!” comments and all required equipment will be my rolling focused students.
