Experience the Dark Art of the Skinny Stick
August 21 - August 22$390
Turner Wilson returns to MIKCo, joined by Liz Johnson and Nick Oyler, for this two-day class on paddling and rolling with a skinny stick.
Explore the foundation skills of the extensive Greenland rolling repertoire: layback, forward, and sculling rolls with the paddle, norsaq, hand, and more!
Experience the elegance and ease of Greenland strokes: canted, sliding, vertical, bow & stern sweeps, bow & stern rudders, sculling draws.
Learn the balance brace, sculling brace, and chest scull, as well as low, high, and deep pry brace recoveries.
Build and practice skills. In this 2-day workshop, we will begin with a thorough breakdown of how the roll works on the land, followed by in-water coaching. We’ll discuss the design features of the stick and how it functions best, and then we’ll try it on the water with a strokes component. Each day we will practice what you have learned and build on that foundation.
