Sea Kayak Handling Video Demonstrations

You’ve read Doug’s clear explanation of edged turning and noted his top tips. You’ve seen the clear photo sequence of backward paddling (“Ah, that’s where I start my back-stroke!”). Now you can view video clips of each of the skills and strokes from the book, right here. Check them out using the thumbnails below or order your copy of Sea Kayak Handling here.

Each thumbnail links to our Vimeo feed.
