Blue Waters Kayaking Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking Kayak down rapids

Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is generally differentiated from canoeing by the fact that a kayak has a closed cockpit and a canoe has an open cockpit. However, there are many sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity. They also use a two bladed paddle. Another major difference is in the way the paddler sits in the boat. Kayakers sit in a seat on the bottom of the boat with their legs extended out in front of them. Canoeists will either sit on an elevated bench seat or kneel directly on the bottom of the boat.

White water kayaking involves taking a kayak down rapids. Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking involves taking kayaks out on to the ocean or other open water i.e a lake. Sea kayaking can involve short paddles with a return to the starting point or "put-in" or expeditions covering many miles and days. Kayaking of all kinds has continued to increase in general popularity through the 1990s and early 21st century.

How to Perform the Eskimo Roll in Kayaking

Self guide to success

ALL kayakers must learn and master the Eskimo rolls. In all, three rolls define the Eskimo roll, which include, one, two, and three man rolls. The three man roll is important, yet various other methods are often employed to escape capsizing. (Flipping of the boat)

If you are new at kayaking, learning the Eskimo roll could prove helpful throughout your trip. In fact, all experts know and use the Eskimo roll in every adventure they take. The Eskimo roll originated from missionaries travelling to Greenland in the late 1700s.

However, in the 1920s a man named Pawlate corrected the method missionary Greenlanders employed. This brought the Eskimo roll to a new name, which commonly kayakers will call the righting roll. It didnít take long however, that new comers to the kayaking world, invented the Pawlata Roll, which is a variant of the Eskimo roll.

In addition to the Eskimo roll, you can roll your kayak while using your hands during capsizes. You can learn how to use the hands properly, which will form a, Ďno-paddle,í Eskimo roll. Flat water, sprinting kayaks is the only time you should not use the hands to perform the hands only roll. The boat is fragile.

The start of learning Eskimo rolls is to make sure your footrest is secure. The kneepads should brace your knees, and the seat should feel snug. If you slide sideways or backwards in the kayak, then you are sitting in the wrong boat.

You will also need to purchase a spray skirt. The skirt should feel comfortable. Neoprene tends to sell the best line of kayak spray skirts. Kits are available.

The skirt should fit snugly about your ribs and hips. Once you put the skirt on and step into the cockpit you will fit the skirt about the Coaming. (Learn about Cockpit Coaming)

Most times it doesnít happen, but in the event you capsize and need to leave the vessel in a hurry, you can use a quick release supplied in your kayak to exit the ship. You should wear scuba masks, and proper gear while kayaking at all times. Once you learn the Eskimo roll however, you can use the scuba mask if you choose. It isnít necessary if you master the Eskimo roll. If you are kayaking make sure you have floatation devices, buoyancy, and floating devices.

If you flip your kayak, the golden rule is to lean over the boat and brace the boat tightly to the right. You want to use an instructor if you never kayaked to learn proper strategies in the event of capsizing.

Eskimo rolls depend on hip movement and the way you manoeuvre your paddles. When practicing the Eskimo roll, be sure you use your mask, until you master the tactic. Take a deep breathe, and prepare to learn forward while feeling the feet and knee pressure.

You want to practice as much as possible to remove fear. When capsized in a kayak, you want to avoid guessing and fear. In fact, when travelling anywhere in a kayak you want to avoid panic, fear, and guessing.

Once you start feeling your body parts, you will need to swim. Your head should go toward the hull of the boat. Learn to practicing breathing before you attempt the Eskimo roll to help you avoid fear. You want to prepare to shut off the quick release, and slowly pry your body from the boat, floating down, and then swinging the feet outward and in a clear direction. You want to learn to roll left and/or right while mastering the Eskimo roll.
