New Instruction DVD - Kayak Essentials

Tuesday, 09 February 2010
Kayak Essentials DVD CoverA new kayak instructional DVD that you might be interested in is just about to be released.

Kayak Essentials is a DVD released out of the UK from BCU coaches, Nick Cunliffe and Matt Giblin. Developed for both whitewater and sea kayak kayakers; Kayak Essentials focuses on foundational kayak skills that are key to more advanced performance in rough water.

“There have been plenty of white water and sea kayaking videos in the past”, explains Nick, “but there were no well-filmed, quality DVDs that properly presented the fundamentals of effective kayaking for the beginner and intermediate paddler.

We set out to fill this gap, to create a resource for improvers, advanced paddlers and coaches”.

The DVD is 95 minutes long so there is bound to be solid information for both whitewater and sea kayakers.

I’m waiting for a DVD copy to come in the mail so I will post a review as soon as I get a chance to watch it.

The DVD goes on sale this month for £19.95 including UK postage. I’m not sure of pricing world wide.

Here is a brief clip:
