Sea Kayaking by Gordon Brown - An Excellent Guide, 31 Aug. 2011
I have returned to sea kayaking after a 30 year break, some "sit on top" experience over the past 5 years, but now back to the real thing. Beside the dramatic improvement and choice of kayaks (I have just bought a Valley Etain) my skills were rusty. Gordon's book and DVD are a "must have" for anyone interested in sea kayaking.The quality of the book, the photographs and the DVD are excellent. Clear, concise and informative. I read it cover to cover and now find I refer back to it as necessary. In particular I find the DVD very useful when it comes to learning skills and strokes. One day I may be able to do a Bow Rudder or Cross Bow Rudder, Gordon makes every look effortless. The only point I would make is that there is little guidance on clothing. There are a lot of options and I would appreciate some guidance in this area. I understand that many authors are reluctant to give product endorsements but for many people the experience and knowledge of the experts is extremely helpful. Hopefully going to Skyak in September.
