Reviews of Rough Water Handling

Sea Kayaker Magazine

Rough Water Handling is a great way to show calmer water paddlers what adventures await them and how they can prepare for handling those waters.

Ocean Paddler Magazine

It is awe inspiring and more than a little intimidating to watch great sea kayakers cruising through rough water. In mountainous seas they accomplish turns and surf runs most of us can barely attempt in force four. many of their skills seem to be utterly instinctive and I doubted they could be dissected, codified and explained. Yet after watching this DVD, I think I understand a little more about how they do it.
