Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

500+ easy-to-digest tips for making sea kayaking safer and more enjoyable Drawn in part from the popular "Tips" column appearing in Sea Kayaker magazine, SEA KAYAKER'S SAVVY PADDLER arms novice and expert paddlers alike with helpful, tested-and-refined-in-the-field advice. The tips and techniques are inventive, yet head-smackingly simple: for example, convert an old CD into a signal mirror; use a drinking straw to suck the air from bread bags to add days of freshness. These great ideas are complemented by practical discussions of such things as how to pack a kayak for a multi-day trip, lists of essential touring items, advice on choosing the best paddling boat or partner, recipes for quick meals on the water or in camp, and much more. Tips are organized into sections for ease of access: * Major purchases * Outfitting * Navigation and safety * Food, clothing and shelter * Health and fitness

Synopsis:

Contains over 200 concise tips that should make sea kayaking easier, safer, and more enjoyable. The tips are organized into eight sections: major purchases, outfitting, navigation and safety, accessories, kits and containers, food, clothing, shelter, health and fitness, and packing for a trip.

Synopsis:

"I wish this book had been available twenty years ago when I first took up sea kayaking. It would have helped me avoid having to learn many things the hard way."--from the foreword by Christopher Cunningham, editor, Sea Kayaker

Simple, Practical, Ingenious.

Doug Alderson has been paddling for years, and in Sea Kayaker's Savvy Paddler he shares his hard-earned wisdom. These 538 tips on everything from gear and clothing to navigation and campcraft have been tried, tested, and refined by seasoned paddlers. You're guaranteed to find in these pages revelations that will have you wondering, "Why didn't I think of that?"
