This is an excellent book on both teaching and learning how to eskimo roll.

All kinds of roll you never knew existed are explained, with exercises in a logical sequence, from the easiest to master to the hardest. Diagrams are clear.

For novices there are lots of pre-roll exercises to master, to make learning this paddling essential as easy as pie!

There are lots of interesting anecdotes to enjoy as the author is widely experienced and this makes the book a good read as well as being highly instructional.

For Western Australian paddlers this book is available through the State Library Service, though you will wait a few weeks to get it.
