Skimming the Surface: Teaching Kayak Support Strokes and Rolls.
Higgins, Peter; Morgan, Alastair
Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Leadership, v14 n1 p3-6 Spr 1997
Teaching novice kayakers only the biomechanics of a roll and other "closed" (nonadaptable) skills does not create opportunities for flexible skill development. A wider approach teaches support strokes and rolls by focusing on "open" skills that can be transferred or adapted to any situation, including emergency decision making, body movement, and underwater orientation.
