Re: Roll Critique
I used to have the same problem.
Many people will point out that "her head is coming up" while this is true, it's not actually the root cause of the problem in this case. Her paddle is diving down instead of sweeping the surface (left hand punching forward). When her paddle dives, it quickly winds up nearly vertical with no leverage and her body sinks after it... at this point she can feel her shoulder descending and is bringing up her head... and even if she did manage to get mostly upright she would likely nearly go under again from the counter force of pulling her blade out. The fix for this is to simply sweep the paddle across the surface at a climbing angle rather than down.
Also, her body is very tense as she's trying to muscle herself up and the hip snap does not really seem to be there.
I would highly recommend either getting an instructor to work with her in a pool or something, or at the very least going back to the basics. Repeatedly attempting rolls at this point will just reinforce the problematic motions. Start with t rescues or hand rolling off an object. Make sure she gets the boat completely upside down first by loosening her hips. Then guide the paddle for her on roll attempts with your hands so she gets used to feeling the motion. Finally have her do the roll but with your hands still there applying light upward pressure on the blade. Don't progress to any next stage until she has the previous one (and associated hip snap) mastered.
