About this title


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.

From the Back Cover:

Kayaking is one of today’s fastest growing outdoor sports, and Knack Kayaking for Everyone makes joining in easier than ever— whether you seek solace on a lake, want to run rapids, or prefer paddling with dolphins. It takes you from store to shore, and beyond. Full-color photos throughout accompany succinct, step-by-step instructions on every aspect of the sport—from what equipment you need to basic strokes, from navigation to rescues and, yes, exactly what to do if your boat tips. Also included are ideas for fun and games and for special paddlers. Over 450 color photos covering:
