One thing I have always been rather good at is the ‘Greenlander roll’. That is, the first 180° of it.
To better my chance of keep breathing while paddling and get some prestige amongst fellow paddlers I have decided to learn how to do the last 180°.
To that end I have attended a 6 hour, 4 hours on the water, course in a nice hot swimmingpool today.
My muscles aches and my eyes are red from chlorine but I did it!!! I actually rolled all the way about 8 times.
However, I did not get that ‘aha’ experience. You know, that revelation that will make you roll almost every time. When I rolled it was more a stroke of luck than anything else. So I need to take one maybe two courses more. But I don't mind that at all. Every course will better my technique and in the end learn me how to roll the magic 360°.
