Touring in Your Sea Kayak

Front Cover
Menasha Ridge Press, 1998 - Sports & Recreation - 32 pages
Sea kayaking has come a long way since Eskimos first stretched polar bear hide over a simple bone frame. Today sea kayaking opens the door to adventure that can take you from freshwater lakes to salt marshes, from cypress-lined rivers to sandy beaches. Readers who want to explore the growing sport of sea kayaking will gain a head start when they pick up Linda Legg's Touring in Your Sea Kayak.

Sea kayaking is a whole body sport, and Legg teaches new sea kayakers how to paddle and brace. Each paddling description breaks down the movements into easy-to-understand directions and offers suggestions on refining technique.

Readers will also learn how to transport boats safely, how to enter and exit without falling in the water, and, most importantly, how to avoid hidden dangers that even experienced paddlers sometimes overlook -- tides, sudden squalls, and the like.

Anyone can get in a boat and start paddling, but Touring in Your Sea Kayak shows you the best way to get there -- by steering a straight and confident line.
