Good tutorial,Makes it look easy enough and breaks it down into easy sections.Nice enough helmet,looks fairly rock resistant.Should do the trick.I ain't got one yet.But I thought this was the c to c roll. I was told the eskimo roll was when you grab the front of a fellow kayaker's kayak and use that as leverage instead of the paddle...What's Mardi Gras?Need tutorial.Thanks anyway man,you make it look easy.

Thanks for associating the key movement with a hockey hip check. I would've thought it was just the rolling of the upper body! :)

Head looks a bit low on the setup, but hard to tell exactly. Overall, not a good explanation of the roll.

Good video but you should have pointed out the move your right wrist does "ahead" to get the paddle in the right (parallel to the surface) position. Greetings from lake constance
