Comprehensive Greenlandic Paddling Skills Workshops

Comprehensive Greenlandic Paddling Skills Workshops

Cheri and Turner of 'This is the Roll' fame are back In July for 3 days.  A super couple who really know there stuff, are highly talented and nice as well!

Cheri and Turner are sole partners in Kayak Ways LLC, a venture based on the notion that the traditional kayaking skills of the Inuit seal catchers offer valuable lessons for the modern day recreational kayaker. For the last six years we have been going far and wide, teaching these uniquely consistent and practical kayaking skills.

Explore the elegance and ease of Greenland strokes: canted, sliding, vertical, bow & stern sweeps, Bow & stern rudders, sculling draws. Learn the Balance Brace, sculling Brace, and chest scull, as well as low, High, and deep Pry brace recoveries. Engage the Extensive Greenland rolling repertoire: layback forward, and sculling rolls with the pad- dle, norsaq, Hand, and more!

Cheri and Turner have mentored skinny stick skills all over the world. Cheri competed in the Greenland National Kayaking Championships in both 2004 & 2005. 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. He competed in the 2005 Greenland National Kayaking Championships in Paamiut, winning several Gold Medals
