Tallip paarlatsillugit paateqarliuni massikut - Greenland style, forward ending kayak-roll with the arms crossed on the paddle - 5 points/side in the Greenland rolling championships.
Kayaking as an outdoor sports-activity - not this weekend! I spent my time with kayaks in swimming pools: Saturday-evening with Jelle and Angela in Alphen with the Kayakclub de Kromme Aar, today I did two classes for Kayakclub Woerden - resp. adults and kids. The outdoors weren't very inviting with stormy winter weather.
While Jelle and Angela were fooling around with the underwater-camera, I had a good moment to work on the greenland-style rolls. Finally I got the clue of the crossed-arm-roll - the last forward finishing roll on the wish list ;-). Once you get the set up right, this roll isn't as complicated as the name (and the ratings) suggests. So now the next step are the forward finishing hand-rolls, the Norsaq rolls and fancy rolls like handrolling while holding a brick and other heavy stuff. Still a lot to learn this winter!
