Review Detail


This book has become a standard over the years, and I am happy to own it and check things from time to time. It was well recommended by my kayak-teacher and a has become my "kayak bible" of sorts.

No book can replace a teacher on the water, but this one is about as good as paper gets and I actually find myself quoting lines from this book when running rivers like for example saying "go with the V and you'll be free" when I looking for the way out of a cataract ...

I think this is the first time that I give the full score - it's that good!
