Paddling on the edge - the ability to hold the kayak level or on edge using knee pressure, to maintain balance using body lean, and when needed to shift weight forward or backward are the skills fundamental to even simple maneuvers such as bracing, upstream ferries, and the Eskimo roll. The Bombproof Roll and Beyond! is an introduction to edge control and balance for paddlers from the beginner to the most expert. Author Paul Dutky shares his whitewater experience to help paddlers master those techniques that will enable them to surf, to playboat, and to run even the most challenging whitewater safely and with confidence.

The Bombproof Roll and Beyond! is an introduction to edge control and balance for paddlers from the beginner to the most expert.
Wonderfully written text and detailed diagrams take paddlers through the basics of the roll, and into advanced rolls and surfing. A must for the kayaker who lives to surf.
