QUESTION

If I am whitewater or sea kayaking, it is possible that my kayak will get overturned leading to a live or death situation.

I've heard that it is possible to roll the kayak so it is right side up again, and that's it's called an Eskimo roll. How would I actually do that?

ANSWER

The best way to learn would be in a class, with a professional in a controlled environment! The process is very difficult to describe in text. This is one of the best videos I have found describing and showing how to do the screw roll.

Once again, please don't attempt without some training or practice in a controlled environment with someone to assist if things go wrong!
