If you are interested in learning how to roll a whitewater kayak, OMOD instructors will guide you through the progression of learning this fundamental skill. If you already have your roll, come out and enjoy the time to practice or jump into a game of kayak water polo.  Kayaks are provided or you may bring your own. We also offer boat demonstrations for white water kayaks, flat water kayaks, canoes, and stand-up paddle boards.  These free clinics are designed to get you comfortable in a boat.
