This roll can be quite tough until you learn to ignore your offside arm. Some people describe this roll as a crossed hands storm roll. I think it is closer to a continuous roll (under paddle roll) than the storm roll.

A: This roll can be completed with arms crossed either way. For competitions start by grasping the paddle with your left hand slightly to the right of the center of the loom.  Put your right arm under your left arm and grip the paddle next to your left hand. Your hands should nearly be touching and in the middle of the loom. Twist your body to the left and dip the paddle into the water parallel to the kayak.

B: Roll in towards the left. Wait until you surface and your hands are above the water. Push your chin up to the surface to help the kayak start to rotate. Push the aft end of the paddle up and swing it onto the underside of the hull (now on top). Get the paddle at right angle to the kayak.

C: Now, relax your right arm. Start the kayak rotating with your right knee. Push you chin towards your chest. Pull down with your left arm.

D: Pivot the paddle on the kayaks gunwales and then foredeck. Allow the paddle to move right and outwards. Keep you head low and slide your nose across the foredeck to finish near your right knee.

Good competition form is to lift up the paddle and show people your hands are still crossed when you are finished.


Rol con brazos cruzados

a) Éste puede completarse con los brazos cruzados en ambos sentidos. En competición agarra la pala con tu mano izquierda un poco a la derecha del centro del mástil. Pon el brazo derecho bajo el izquierdo y agarra la pala junto a la mano izquierda. Tus manos casi se estarán tocando y en medio del mástil. Gírate hacia la izquierda y sumerge la pala paralela al kayak.

b) Vuelca por la izquierda. Espera a que tus manos emerjan. Eleva el mentón hacia la superficie para ayudar a rotar el kayak. Sube el extremo a popa de la pala y ponlo sobre el fondo del casco (ahora arriba) Coloca la pala en ángulo recto al kayak.

c) Relaja el brazo derecho. Comienza la rotación del kayak con tu rodilla derecha. Lleva tu mentón hacia el pecho. Tira con tu brazo izquierdo.

d) La pala pivota en la borda y luego en la cubierta delantera. Deja que la pala vaya a la derecha y hacia fuera. Mantén la cabeza baja y cruza la cubierta delantera con la nariz para acabar junto a tu rodilla derecha.
