Loel Collins draws on his experience to help the readers learn to roll a kayak or improve the roll they already have. The approach is to illustrate the ideas with clear photo sequences, keeping the text to a minimum. Rolling is learnt by working through a sequence of exercises to allow the learner to 'feel' what is required. Once the initial sequences have been learnt, problems are identified and solved. The learners are then provided with exercises to prepare them for the challenges involved in rolling in rough water and given advice on how to cope when they get there. For those who wish to improve an unreliable roll, a flow chart helps them to plan a learning sequence and choose the appropriate exercises. Although aimed at kayakers, the book is also a mine of useful tools for the coach looking for tools that they can use when teaching rolling.
