The Donkey Flip – Kayak Instruction Video

Donkey Flip on a small wave:

1.
Make sure you can do a fast backdeck
roll.

2.
Drive down the wave and force your
bow into the greenwater.

3.
Drop and edge and lift your knees
hard to get the bow up.

4.
At that same moment- Throw your body
on the back deck and in the direction you want to roll.

5.
When you are upside down really force
your body on the back deck and your toes straight.

6.
Set up for the backdeck roll and slap
the water to get the boat under you as fast as possible
to avoid the green water from hitting your body and dragging
you off the wave.

7.
Take a stroke and sit up fast to lift
the bow up so you don’t pearl off.

Just a quickie technique article on this
one today.
