A few weeks ago I recorded some further attempts to develop rollling repertoire after watching some videos on the internet. Pausing and replaying only a second or so of some of Helen Wilson's videos gave me a rough idea but its usually very hard to make out what folk are doing exactly, so its a slow job of figuring it out in practice. Watching my attempts back again helps.
It would be great to get a bit of coaching in this but since that is unlikely at the moment any helpful comments are welcome.
I am not sure why having my paddle in my left hand helped. Originally I had it in case I failed and wanted to roll up in the regular way, but it must have had a positive effect on how I positioned my body. Quite often I had to re-set up the starting body position and go again and it worked second time.
I am hoping to get out and give it a go again soon. It will be interesting to find out if watching the video helps me remember how to do it...
Next time I am going to try other hand held objects like a swim fin, hand paddle and bat in the hopes that will increase my 'feel' for what is happening.
