Kayak Essentials DVD


Filmed and produced in 2008/9, Kayak Essentials DVD introduces the foundation kayaking skills that underpin more advanced performance in rough water. Aimed at newcomers to the sport and intermediate paddlers, the combination of flat water skills and white water, surf and sea kayak applications provides clear links between key fundamentals (posture, connections between boat, body and blade) and effective paddling skills in more challenging environments.
Kayak Essentials offers 95 minutes of action, analysis, coaching tips, progressions and challenges. 14 chapters focus on core paddling skills, filmed in a wide variety of flat water, white water, sea surf venues. White water kayaks and sea kayaks feature throughout.Core skills such as forward paddling, reverse paddling, moving sideways, edging and balancing, bracing, steering and moving sideways are analysed and explained, with clear demonstrations, key points and coaching progressions are provided to help improving paddlers make best use of the wealth of information.

Additional chapters include the fundamentals of effective kayaking, stroke linking and advice on making the best use of the vast amount of coaching material.

Kayak Essentials is an excellent resource for any paddler seeking to develop their flat water skills – newcomers and improving paddlers will particularly benefit from the drills, training exercises and challenges presented. These solid foundations will make the progression from flat water to moving water, sea and surf far easier and more effective.

Coaches working with beginners and intermediate paddlers can also benefit from the demonstrations and coaching progressions presented in the DVD.

You’ve done a top notch job in all aspects – filming, describing, explaining –
