Author Dennis Stuhaug will show you how to choose the right hull for your needs; outfit your kayak with seat, flotation, spray deck and other fittings; master the basic maneuvers, from the sweep stroke to the sculling brace; assemble a kayaking wardrobe that provides comfort and warmth without breaking your budget; safely navigate the hazards of wind, fog, eddies, and rip currents; and ensure that all of your kayaking companions, including the kids, have a terrific time.
