Just how simple is an eskimo role, you ask? Some are able to role 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 eskimo roles, and ensures that you feel safe and secure each time. He makes the course interactive, personal and suited to your skill level.

You can rent kayaks, clothing, spray decks and paddles for the course for kr 150,-. We have both river and sea kayaks.

Bring a woollen base layer, a towel and shoes you don’t mind getting wet – you will understand why the moment you self-capsize!

We hold a course every Wednesday throughout the summer. Otherwise, the course must be carried out as a private lesson.

Pricing for the course: kr 900,-
Kayak and clothing rental: kr 150,-

To be able to give you all the time you need to learn to eskimo role, this course can take privately (from kr 700,-). See pricing for private lessons here.

Sønnen min på 13, hans onkel på besøk fra utlandet og jeg hadde en fantastisk tur ned Akerselva fra Grunerparken ved Mathallen og ut til Operaen. En god opplevelse og en annen måte å oppleve Akerselva og padling på. Anbefales varmt!! MadGoats er gode på det de gjør 🙂
