Learn the Balance Brace, sculling Brace, and chest scull, as well as low, High, and deep Pry brace recoveries. Engage the Extensive Greenland rolling repetoire: layback forward, and sculling rolls with the paddle, norsaq, Hand, and more!

She is widely regarded as one of the best Greenland-style kayak rollers in the world. Turner is one of those rare paddlers outside of Greenland who began paddling with a traditional blade. Turner competed in the 2005 Greenland National Kayaking Championships in Paamiut.
Cheri & Turner will be giving daily Group Classes on Saturday June 25th & Sunday June 26th 2011. The fee for class is $175 per day and the maximum number of students is 8 per day.
You don't need your own greenland paddle to take the class as Cheri and Turner bring a large assortment of paddles so that they can fit an appropriate paddle to each person that needs a paddle for the class.
