Essentials of River Kayaking, 2004 - book review.

Introduction to whitewater river kayaking techniques for beginning paddleboaters.

Essentials of River Kayaking provides a brief, quick introduction to a wide range of important skills & techniques that all whitewater river kayakers need to know about. Topics include: how to be safe on the water, kayaks & paddles, getting the kayak onto the river, kayaking strokes, kayaking on moving water, rescue & safety. None of these techniques can be covered completely in this very short booklet, but the booklet does provide a foundation of basic knowledge that can help prepare a beginning paddleboater to continue learning more from other sources in the future.
I rate this book as a good resource for beginning kayakers (*** 3 stars out of 5).
