Every now and then we all screw up a roll, drop the paddle. Or just find ourselves in need of some assistance. Swimming the kayak is a great skill to have in your portfolio. It can allow you to reach another kayak or a fixed object or even to retrieve your paddle at times. If nothing else it is good for your confidence to know you don’t have to bail out and wet exit.
