We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

Have you always wanted to learn how to roll a kayak? Here is your chance to learn! Anyone can roll a kayak if they learn the proper technique. In this class you will learn the skills used to roll a kayak, from our fantastic and patient instructor, Jen Buseman. Jen has been a professional kayak guide and instructor for years, and is the right person to teach this skill. We will also have additional support staff in the water.

By the end of this class, you will be able to show off your new skills to your friends, as well as feeling safer and more confident on the water!
