Roll with It! CP's Winter Fav


The Rolling and Rescue class at the Skokie Lifetime Fitness pool introduced me to The Northwest Passage about 7 years ago. I took the class with my dad and some family friends. I had previously paddled a kayak only a handfull of times.

Instructor Keith Heger worked with my buddy Kulby and me during the first night. As the end of the pool session drew to a close, Kulby had hit his roll once, and I was still just making it halfway up, sucking down a gulp of air and then plunging back into the warm pool water.
