'I wish this book had been available twenty years ago when I first took up sea kayaking. It would have helped me avoid having to learn many things the hard way' - from the foreword by Christopher Cunningham, editor, "Sea Kayaker Simple, Practical, Ingenious". Doug Alderson has been paddling for years, and in "Sea Kayaker's Savvy Paddler" he shares his hard-earned wisdom. These 538 tips on everything from gear and clothing to navigation and campcraft have been tried, tested, and refined by seasoned paddlers. You're guaranteed to find in these pages revelations that will have you wondering, "Why didn't I think of that?".

Book Description:

The Savvy Paddler offers more than 200 concise, easily digestible tips for any paddler to make sea kayaking easier, safer, and more enjoyable. These tips, which will appeal to beginners as well as experts, are inventive yet head-smackingly simple: For example convert an old CD into a signla mirror, or use a drinking straw to suck the air from your bread bag to add days of freshness. Tips are complemented by longer discussions on such things as packing a kayak for a multiday trip, and lists covering essential touring items, choosing the best paddling partner or boat, and recipes for quick meals on the water or in camp. Based on the popular "Tips" column in Sea Kayaker magazine, the Savvy Paddler offers advice that has been tried, tested, and refined. Author Doug Alderson, a regular contributor to Sea Kayaker, is a certified kayak instructor, boatbuilder, SCUBA diver, and year-round kayaker near his home in British Columbia.

About the Author:
