Build your confidence and learn to roll! Rolling is the safest and fastest self-rescue technique available for sea and whitewater kayakers.
New policy: due to increasing rates at the Richmond Plunge, we are now offering two pricing tiers for rolling classes—first time students pay $75, and if you've taken a rolling class from California Canoe & Kayak in the past year pay $60.
Note: Kayak rolling is taught only in whitewater kayaks due to space limitations in the pool.
- Please call us if you wish to schedule private instruction in a sea kayak for $150 per session.
- A Private class can be arranged if the minimum enrollment not met, additional fee applies.
Once you have learned to roll can come and practice either in your own boat or by renting one from us.
Practice Sessions: $15 pool fee with own boat. Call your nearest CCK for rental rate.
Prerequisite: There is no prerequisite for this class; however, previous paddling experience is highly recommended. Your progression will be quicker if you have completed the Beginning Sea Kayak class or Whitewater 101. The minimum age for Roll Class is 5 years; children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
