Kayaking Fundamentals: How to Do the Hip Snap

The hip snap, or hip flick, is a key component of several essential kayaking skills including the high brace, low brace and all kayak rolling techniques. In Part V of our Kayaking Fundamentals video series, instructor Ken Whiting shows you how to practice the hip snap on your own or with a partner. Once you’ve mastered this technique, you’ll be ready to learn more advanced rolling and bracing skills for sea kayaking and whitewater kayaking.
