I don't often just echo, but my experience was the same [as previous reviewer]: I was surprised by the quality of instruction and quality of production of this video. They worked to develop a coherent common theme and communicate it consistently. That theme, if I may be so bold, is that successful rolling can be accomplished in many ways but a low-resistance high-brace sweep is the safest and most reliable. It may not be the easiest to learn but, once learned, it's the easiest to perform. Mastery requires instruction, because finesse rolling is not intuitive (and instruction means more than watching a video); mastery is not a prerequisite for kayaking; but mastering this roll opens the door to more adventurous kayaking, including other rolling methods. That's their premise.
They proceed to not only teach how to roll, they actually explain how they teach rolling. It's really an impressive piece of work. I'd be proud to have my name on it.

Bought this DVD expecting the usual to find myself totally hooked with the video. Have seen many videos along the way on Kayak Roll and none measures up to this practical, crystal clear experience. Kent Ford & his friends deliver one of the best how to videos on kayak roll. Whether you are into river kayaking, sea kayaking or kayak fishing this is a must see DVD.
Excellent from start to end.
