Air Sculling Roll

This is a trick roll, performed by Dubside (first?) In this roll the paddle sticks straight up out of the water and sculls only in air as the paddler essentially does a straight jacket roll using the torque of the lower body.

Instructions Set up the paddle like a standard roll but with the paddle extended towards the back of the kayak. Roll in towards the paddle when it surfaces on the far side lift the paddle to point straight up with both hands, and wiggle it pretending to get purchase on the air, while this is going on roll the kayak up with a strong hip flick and similar action to a straight jacket roll.
