If you’re new to kayaking, this DVD will help you to learn the key skills for the exciting world of paddlesport. White water, surf or sea kayak – the core principles introduced here will be solid foundations to develop advanced performance.

If you’re an active paddler, looking to refine your skills, the fundamentals explored in this DVD will give you a solid platform to move your paddling on to the next level.

For more advanced paddlers, there are drills and routines to develop your existing skills – we call them hard moves on easy water!

Throughout this DVD we focus on the core fundamentals of effective paddling – the principles that underpin advanced performance. Solid foundations on flat water and application of the fundamentals on white water, sea and surf give the basis of effective performance.

Key skills include:

• Core fundamentals

• Stroke linking

DVD chapters take a progressive approach to skill development, focusing on solid foundations, building blocks for more advanced skills, flat water exercises, white water, surf and sea kayak applications, plus essential challenges for boat and blade awareness.
