Comments about Dr. Ben's Rolling Elixir DVD:

The suggested landbased introduction is great but there are enough differences in the water to make a 'second half' water based instruction helpful/required. It could have been easily put on in place of the 'playful nonsense' which added nothing to the instruction

      Comments about Dr. Ben's Rolling Elixir DVD:

      This video explains very clearly the details of body and paddle position in order to learn a successful roll. I have had some previous rolling instruction and had been experiencing some difficulties. After watching the video my roll has improved and I am more able to troubleshoot any difficulties I may be having. I would highly recommend this video to anyone learning to roll or having difficulty with their rolls.

          Comments about Dr. Ben's Rolling Elixir DVD:

          Ben is a fabulous instructor. I was lucky enough to take a couple of his courses when he was in the Boston area. The rolling clinic was especially helpful. Being able to get the basics of a roll on dry land with the instructor walking you through the process beats hanging upside down under water trying to figure out what you are doing wrong. Been there done that, not so much fun.

            Does this DVD cover the techniques & method of dry land rolling?
            I recently learned about this method at the 2013 Canoecopia.
