Re: Launching: New build- Low deck S&G / Strip hyb

It occurs to me that if you can balance brace, an easier first roll may be a butterfly roll. I've never taught it that way, but getting to the surface is pretty easy with a vest and tuilik on for the butterfly -- you just push the paddle away from the boat and engage the knee, etc. Then you come to the surface. I may try teaching it that way at some point.
