New Sea Kayak Instruction DVD: Sea Kayak EssentialsSunday, 08 May 2011
There is a new kayak training DVD about to be released called Sea Kayak Essentials and it’s put together by the same gang that brought us Kayak Essentials last year which we were happy to review at the time.
This time round they are looking specifically at sea kayaking with a focus on the following skills:
- 5 Essentials of Boat Speed, Angle and Trim; Body Position, Stroke Linking
- Fundamentals of Posture, Connectivity, Feel and Power Transfer
- Core skills of Forward paddling, Balancing and Turning
- Use of the Skeg
- Boat Awareness exercises
There are also sections that go into more detail on how to paddle in advanced conditions including tidal races, surfing and rock hopping.
I’m really looking forward to seeing this DVD. Kayak Essentials was well produced and focused a lot on the technical skill development so there was a lot of material to work with. Sea Kayak Essentials looks to be in a similar vein and very promising.
A trailer was recently posted and it’s embedded below.
You can find more information about Sea Kayak Essentials on their website.
