Balance brace with no paddle on a summer tour 2005 . A loaded Njord provides secondary stability enough to lay back in the water and float, and even take a sip of coffee in this position. Photo: Magnus Karlsson

looking forward to your performance at Stocken. You have 2,5 months to practise.

Would be fun, wouldn´t it? I was hoping you or someone else would find it unresistably tempting…
I, on the other hand, use whatever practice time I can squeeze in to get my handrolls in shape. I am beginning to suspect that my way is a cul-de-sac - have not been able to develop then into forward leaning, sweeping back-to-front, elbow rolls etc, not even with a norsaq. When I look at Dubside, Cherri, Turner, Freya et al they seem to reach a balance-brace-like position just before sliding in over the deck, where I use a technique I happened to succeed with some years ago - the last 270 degrees one single, quick continuous movement. I believe I have to find the micropause at the surface to have time to right the kayak, before sliding in and up. I could use some coaching…
