The first two rolls are my "strong" side, the last two are my off side. Oddly enough, I don't have any confidence in my "strong" side - my preferred roll now is my off side.
Thrashing around trying to salvage a bad roll or desperately trying to prevent a flip is probably a major contributor to my cervical spine issues (neck).
A major reason why I picked up a Villain is that it was the easiest for me to roll.
I very rarely flip on a river. I love my Jackson Villain and in 12-15 trips in it so far (Ocoee, Upper and Lower Yough) I have only flipped once - right before the big waves in Double Trouble, rolled up immediately on my off side. I do play, such as I can, and take hard lines on the Ocoee and Lower Yough. The boat shrugs off big and funny water (Did I say I love my Villain?)
Thanks in advance!
Wasn't the original idea that c2c was more teachable? Maybe it worked well with old school boats, ezwater New
Thanks - my question is how to best consciously "initiate" a hip snap? I've always just "done it" CintiBud New
In a sweep roll, you don't have to initiate a hip snap, your torso rotation does it automatically. <NT> Terrell New
since your torso isn't rotating, you don't have much hip snap. Rotate your torso from start position................... Terrell New
I think my offside is better because I rotate my torso more - I have picked up more bad habits on my strong side CintiBud New

Wow! Thanks for all the suggestions! I can't thank everyone individually but I really appreciate everyone's input! CintiBud New
Dunno if it's been recommended yet (haven't read thread) but I find this video to be the best DangerJudy New
