Beginners- EJ bracing and rolling!

Picked up a copy of bracing and rolling and finally figured out a brace (first try too). After about a dozen times I was able to brace out of having both shoulders and head completely submerged, on both sides of the boat. This may sound trivial to some of you... but I've taken 4 "pool session" classes (8 hours) and wasn't ever able to figure it out. It amazes me people haven't copied EJ's teaching method. Also got my first hand roll on the second attempt... sucks it's the end of the season!

Now if only my wife could figure out her roll LOL

I am a big fan of EJ's videos and training methods and have used them a lot. I own and like a bunch, two of his kayaks and think he is a great business man turning out a great product.

On his rolling method, it is dynamite and works IF and a big if, a person is really flexible. Many would be roll students and beat up kayakers find more of the classic sweep type roll a bit easier on the back. EJ is the pro and expert, just my experience teaching rolls over the years as a ACA instructor but not a professional paid instructor by a long shot. So flame away if you wish!
