The plan was to get on the lake this weekend, even if only for a short time. Sunday evening the weather was perfect so I hit Lake Independence for a 6 mile circumnavigation of the lake, and a half hour or so of rolling. Last year the Nordkapp gave me some troubles with the lay back rolls, so I was a bit surprised when I was able to hit both on side, and off side angel rolls with out any problems. The forward sweep is working real well on the on side ... off side, well, not so well. I seem to get a little disoriented on the off side forward sweep. I had never tried the crook of the elbow roll until last week while I was out with Dave checking out his Feathercraft mods. It seemed like a natural progression to the sweep roll, it seemed to work, not sure if I'm doing it right, but .. what the heck. I did work on the narsaq roll for a while again last night ... close, but not yet.
