Skill level

No previous kayak or paddling experience needed.


Just how simple is an eskimo role, you ask? Some are able to roll by the end of the course, and hats off to them! However, most need more practice in the kayak before they are able to master it. Instructor Tomas Hansson specialises in teaching the eskimo roll, and ensures that you feel safe and secure. He makes the course interactive, personal and suited to your skill level.

Bring a woollen base layer (ull-undertøy), a towel and shoes you don’t mind getting wet.
