Under the Paddle Roll

A: To roll up on the right start with the end of the paddle resting on the foredeck with the paddle sticking out to the right, hold on to the paddle loosely with your right hand and roll left.

B:When upside down reach up with your left hand and hold the paddle.

C: Let go with right on the one side of the kayak and reach your right hand up to be next to your left hand on the other side of the kayak.

D:Roll up as if completing a c-to-c storm roll. The paddle should finish in roughly the same place as it started.

It is possible to keep rolling and rolling like this – apparently this is a good roll to use in speed rolling competition where the objective is to complete as many roils as possible in a fixed time.
