Roll learning sequence

Acording to the Qajaq USA web site, the best sequence for learning rolls is:
side sculling (teaches paddle control,finding balance point of kayak and body, and aft leaning hipsnap on recovery).

  1. standard roll
  2. balance brace
  3. armpit roll or crook arm roll (for variety and to have a one-handed option)
  4. chest scull (teaches forward leaning hipsnap)
  5. reverse roll (very closely linked to the chest scull)
  6. storm roll (an excellent roll for battle conditions)
  7. norsaq rolls (a good intro to the hand rolls)
  8. hand rolls

I guess that means it is time for number 3…. off to hunt for triaing videos.
