Our instructor was excellent. He had us start by balance bracing with paddle floats on each end of the paddle. We then learned to collapse the boat on top of us and then balance brace into laying on the back deck. Then we moved on to assisted rolling with paddle floats, and afterwards took the paddlefloats off. In a couple of lessons we were both getting the hang of it. The interesting thing was that my wife was able to balance brace without a paddle from the start. She's so petite and flexible that she lays at 90 degrees to the boat and floats perfectly without a paddle. I can only do it with the paddle, but managed to get down to using just 1 finger on it.
