It was great to see so many folks at Willard Beach for our first Demo Day of 2021! We had a decent weather window; warm air temperatures tempered the chillier ocean. Cheri mentored paddlers as they dipped into some of their first rolls in our fleet of Tiderace and Rebel Kayaks.
Trying to sort out your first Roll? Need some help? Cheri and Liz have been busy creating a Cheat Sheet for the Standard Greenland Roll. It encompasses a basic key word for each step at the front of each row and a photo of corresponding step both on the land, AND in the water, the final box has a description of what is happening in each phase. Best of all its laminated so it is water ready! Just tuck it under your decklines for easy cheating! Cheat Sheets for the Standard Greenland Roll are $10.
A Big Shout Out to our friend, Liz Johnson!
by Cheri Perry
Lots of you may know Liz Johnson, she is a Maine Sea Kayak Guide and Instructor, she organised the Greenland Gathering on Peaks Island in 2019 that was a huge success. She has worked as a guide and instructor for Maine Island Kayak Co. But did you know that besides kayaking and other outdoor interests she is a website designer?
Just over a year ago, we realized that 2020 would be like no other in anyone’s living memory. Adjusting to new rhythms and circumstances is par for the course. In the last couple of years, even before the virus struck, folks may have noticed that we have taken a break from traveling the world and teaching kayaking. Suddenly, everything around us came to an almost full stop.
