Find advice on all aspects of kayaking and using small boats on big water

Re: Kayaking Instruction Book

There was very little in print when I started kayaking, but the most useful book that I found over the years was John Urbans Whitewater Handbook. I would alternate between reading the book and trying things on the water. The information was very simple and accurate. The important thing is to turn all the conceptual information into solid experience on the water.

Welcome to the sport,


: Relatively new to kayaking but am interested in finding a few good books
: covering an overview of the sport.

: I recently read this one and found it useful but want a few more.
