Product Overview

"Knack Kayaking for Everyone" is aimed at both beginners and casual paddlers, covers both sea kayaking and whitewater kayaking. There are no good, public statistics on the crossover among practitioners of sea kayaking and whitewater kayaking. Modern recreational kayaks, however, are useful on still water and in relatively slow streams (Class 2 and maybe low-flow Class 3), they''re relatively inexpensive, and a lot of paddlers these days start in them and use them in a variety of water types. Thus there is a lot of crossover among beginners and casual paddlers.

From the Publisher
Editors Note Knack Kayaking for Everyone is the most visually driven and yet informative guide to every aspect of an aquatic sport whose popularity has skyrocketed in recent years. The first chapters comprise an idea-packed buying guide to kayak design, kayak features, accessories, and gear. The book then presents step-by-step information on transporting, launching and landing, basic and advanced strokes, techniques, navigation, rescues, and expedition planning. In addition, it fully explores recreational (flatwater) kayaking, whitewater kayaking, and sea kayaking, providing instructions for each. Ideas for fun and games and special paddlers (children, the elderly, the handicapped) are also included, as are chapters on weather and first aid.
