The Dark Art of the Skinny Stick

July 16, 2022 - July 17, 2022

Cheri Perry teaches rolling with a norsaq

with Cheri Perry and Liz Johnson

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.

Beginners to Advanced. Workshops are geared to all levels of rolling ability. Beginners will come away with an understanding of the foundation of rolling. Advanced rollers will have a deeper understanding of small details that allow for a breakthrough on their rolling path. Mentors will be able to add to their tool box. Our small group size allows for personal coaching.

Registration for this weekend workshop is through the Kayak Ways website.
