Greenland Rolling Pool Clinic


There is no such thing as “The Greenland Roll.” In Greenland, there are more than 30 different rolls for different circumstances, and most of them share something in common; there require little energy – provided you move your body in the prescribed way. During this 90-minute clinic you will work our way through the movements for some of the simpler rolls. You do not require a Greenland-style paddle or kayak to participate.

This is not a beginner course. Participants should be able to do a basic roll already.

Expected Outcome:

You will successfully work towards completing various Greenland rolls. Students can retake this class to learn additional Greenland rolls or improve your existing rolls.

Instructor Student Ratio:

1:4 (MAX) to ensure you of the best instructional experience possible!


Kayak, paddle and sprayskirt are provided by MRU, but it is best to bring your own Greenland or Euro-style paddle. If you want to bring your own boat let us know. For space reasons, maximum boat length is 13 feet.

Some students find that swimming goggles and nose plugs are helpful – we spend time underwater, hanging from our kayaks.


16+ years old (or 12-15 years old with a guardian in the pool).

Completion of the Kayak Discovery Clinic, or previous experience with a kayak and the ability to perform a wet exit.

The ability to do the standard Greenland roll, like the one taught is our Kayak Rolling Pool Clinic.
