Eskimo rolling is taught in the sea water baths in Lymington and will be either one or two trainees at a time. Although one hour will not normally be adequate to achieve a proficient Eskimo roll to continue longer in one session would be too tiring. After the first hour you will be able to understand how much more training would be required. Normally two to three sessions would be required.
