After completing our Basics Class and taking a trip or two you may want to fine tune your skills further.

The kayak roll is not a advanced skill, it is a skill that can be added at any stage in a paddler's progression of learning. With our three step process on the surface you will build the muscle memory necessary to roll before you try underwater, eliminating a lot of the dunking. With a roll, you will find you will advance you're skills quickly because you won't worry about capsizing, it's also a great way to cool down in Texas. Discover Kayak has a 90% success rate in the first two hour session, 100% in the follow-up when necessary. You may return for follow ups as much as needed, no extra charge !
Maximum 2 students per session.
Taught on a one on one basis, call we will arrange a time for you!
We Guarantee you will roll! Cost: $150
