Logrolling: Not just for lumberjacks

Posted: Updated:

In order to prevent log jams, lumberjacks had to be quick and accurate when logrolling to ensure their lumber made it safety to its destination, but today, park goers are turning it into a sport.

Made of the same material as a kayak, logrolling is made easy with "trainers" on the end of each log to slow the spin, allowing beginners to get a solid footing. The surface of the log is etched for traction -- no shoes required.

M.A. Rosko grabs a preview of logrolling classes set for Sunday, Aug. 18 at French Regional Park in Plymouth, Minn.
