[kaya-ooyook] 'He who rolls up with his paddle in his kayak after a capsize
 
 
 
 
Basically you have three rolls you have to perform with less and less possibility to create lift, so your technique and timing have to get better as you advance.
 
First version is done with a throwing stick (Norsaq) which has more area than you hand, which is the next step.
Then you try with clenched first to further reduce you effective area and last but not least you do these rolls while holding a brick of several kg in your hand!
 
Fist roll, start forward, finish aft
Again once your handroll version feels ok, try the fist version of the roll. It is a good idea to actually grap something small, so you cannot cheat.
The difference between the different forward to aft versions in my opinion is not too big, so even when you just manage the Norsaq  version, just try one of the harder ones.
However this is quite different with the forward ending handrolls!

Fist roll, start aft, finish forward

The forward ending handrolls done only with your fist are actually a lot harder than the Norsaq or hand versions! You have to be quite good in your hand versions before you should try these.
