The eskimo roll is without a doubt the most important self-rescue maneuver in whitewater kayaking. Besides being essential for whitewater, it is also extremely useful in other kayaking disciplines, such as sea kayaking, kayak polo and evidently, surf kayaking. To an outsider, rolling a kayak might seem funny and entertaining, yet for the enthusiastic paddler, it might dictate the difference between a pleasant day and that of cold and sacrifice. Therefore, taming this technique invented by the eskimos is fundamental to all paddlers who want to venture in the most technically demanding and dangerous rivers and the weekend paddlers alike
