Kingukkut Tunusummillugu

A: The setup for this roll is very similar to the standard reverse sweep roll. Twist clockwise hook the right end of the paddle over the stern. Hold the paddle behind your neck. Your palms should face forward (The way you are looking).

B: Roll in backwards. Arch your back and wait until the back of your head reaches the surface. And you should feel the far end of the paddle above the water too.

C: Keeping your shoulders flat on the water sweep your torso forward. Twist the paddle and sweep it with you.

D: Once you have rotated the paddle perpendicular to the kayak swing your head towards the kayak keeping it low. Drag your nose across the deck.

I found this roll a little odd to finish (you can see that in the video!). But the paddle is so powerful throughout the roll that this was a natural roll to take on after learning the standard reverse sweep roll.


Rol de popa con pala tras el cuello

a) Aquí la colocación es muy similar al de popa normal. Gírate a la derecha y fija el extremo derecho de la pala en la popa. Pon la pala tras el cuello. Las palmas miran adelante (hacia donde miras).

b) Vuelca hacia atrás. Arquea la espalda. Hasta tener el cogote sobre la superficie. Debes sentir el extremo de la pala sobre el agua.

c) Con los hombros planos en el agua lleva tu torso adelante. Acompaña la pala contigo. Mantenla en la misma posición, tras tu cuello, durante el barrido.

d) Una vez la tengas perpendicular al kayak, gira la cabeza hacia el kayak, manteniéndola baja. Tu nariz cruza la cubierta, y acabas en posición de apoyo bajo.
