Helen's roll video off to the printers!

For about the past month I've been working with Helen Wilson on her instructional rolling video. She wanted to have it ready for sale before she heads off to Europe for the summer (teaching clinics and touring for Tahe Kayaks). We had gotten most of the videoing done while I was visiting Arcata in March and then Helen was working on the voiceover, cover art and sending me notes to edit the project. I went back up to Arcata last weekend and three days of non-stop work (editing, re-shooting, mixing and watching it all over and over...) brought the project to its completion - at least our part. The disc is off to the printers and Helen should have boxes of picture perfect DVD's arriving by mid May.

Below is a trailer for the video - Helen did awesome job structuring the video and while it is fundamentally a Greenland rolling technique the information is applicable to anyone wanting to roll any type of kayak. You can pre-order your copy from her website: Greenland or Bust.
