Taking paddling classes with goal of becoming safer and learning to roll.
The instructor uses whitewater boats for initial roll class and then transitions to sea kayak in practice sessions where you can bring your own boat. He knows I have a CLC boat and says they usually don't have a good enough fit to learn to roll. Particularly he is concerned about the flat knee braces and how securely you can lock into the boat when upside down. He suggests some support on the inner edge of the foam padding to keep your knees from sliding over the padding to the center of the boat. He believes the force needed to lock into the boat will pevent me from learnig to roll correctly.
Is he correct. I know I've seen the demo boat rolled and I don't remember if the padding was even contoured?
