The Eskimo roll is a milestone in the development of the perfect paddler.
For whitewater riders it is the key to higher levels of difficulty, a useful supplement for water hikers and a fast and self-sufficient self-rescue for ambitious touring and sea kayakers. In addition, learning the roll raises many relevant skills such as boat feeling, water feeling, anxiety reduction and technique to a new level.

Once you control the roll, you will not have to swim after your boat.© 2017 Packraft-Touren

The Inuits could not swim - mainly because of the dangerously cold ice sea. For them, this technique was vital after capsizing.
Therefore, they invented a technique that allowed them to bring the kayak back into the right position, to roll.
Countless different techniques keep these peoples to this day and are a huge step ahead. In the meantime, not only one technique used in the paddler scene.
