Instruction was great. I made more progress in an hour then I had in weeks of trying to figure out my roll hanging on the side of the pool. Jeff broke the process down into steps based on where I was at in the learning process. It was clear this wasn't a "cookie cutter" approach to learning, but rather the breakdown was tailored to what I needed that day in the pool. Can't wait to build I what I learned.
Very knowledgeable and very enthusiastic!
Good 1:1 time with multiple instructors. Balance of repetition and learning by doing.
I'm thrilled with what I learned in this class. Mike broke it down into easy steps that made each progression seem so easy while building confidence. Beverly, my "security detail", was awesome in helping me and giving me courage! Learning how to get back in the kayak was an added bonus! I look forward to the next practice session to complete my roll!
