Not sure where my boof would be without this video. That guy is a life saver.

ya gotta love it when somebody who sucks at something starts making instructional videos on how to suck at it even worse. Where exactly was the true boof in this footage? Oh, yeah, we probably all need to try and learn that "seated seated roll," too.......

When I was just starting out I watched through this whole video series and assumed these guys knew what they were talking about. Very confusing and misleading instruction. A true disservice to those that want/need the help.

Nearly every single demo is wrong.

Worst part is, the guy spends a third of the roll video telling you you need to tuck your head and protect your face, then he does a back deck roll! I guess it's a "do as I say, not as I do" kind of thing.

THIS clip in particular saved my kayaking career... I spent the first 3 months of my kayak owner-hood sitting at put-ins trying to paddle my way from the truck to the water, while all you REAL kayakers looked at me like I was crazy instead of just giving me the beta. Bastards!
