Roll of the day – Rock roll, forward to back

Rock Roll, start forward, finish backI have to say that when I first tried to do the Rock roll I was a little nervous. First I borrowed from our yard a rock that my good lady might miss if it vanished to the bottom of the lake. Second it feels a little crazy to be carrying a rock out on your kayak just to roll with it and try not to drown. But with all that said I was surprised at the ease with which I completed this roll. I think that there is a small benefit from the rock’s additional surface area at the end of your arm. It acts a little like a norsaq in that way. There is however a big downside to the rock: it sinks, and loves to pull your arm and then the kayak with it.
