Sacobound (No.Conway & at the state line)has a good program, but there must be
something in Maine...near either the Kennebec or
W.Br.Penobscot...or SoMe water.. Your first couple formal *lessons* really should be on flatwater anyways!
Getting stable/comfortable...and developing dependable rolls...then go for current..and make
it a point of rolling & performing wet_exits as much as possible...just gain balance and confidence..especially when underwater.
Plenty of books out there, but Eric Jackson has
a basic WW strokes book...forgot the title...
"Whitewater Strokes"..?? good reading..there's
stuff on the Web also... There's a Mitch Hutchinson<-- last name??? that used to have
some rolling audio/video on the Web..
sound wasn't that great, but it was neat as the
camcorder was sittin' right on the bow for the
whole trip...through a roll.
