500+ easy-to-digest tips for making sea kayaking safer and more enjoyable
Drawn in part from the popular "Tips" column appearing in Sea Kayaker magazine, SEA KAYAKER’S SAVVY PADDLER arms novice and expert paddlers alike with helpful, tested-and-refined-in-the-field advice. The tips and techniques are inventive, yet head-smackingly simple: for example, convert an old CD into a signal mirror; use a drinking straw to suck the air from bread bags to add days of freshness. These great ideas are complemented by practical discussions of such things as how to pack a kayak for a multi-day trip, lists of essential touring items, advice on choosing the best paddling boat or partner, recipes for quick meals on the water or in camp, and much more. Tips are organized into sections for ease of access:
* Major purchases
* Navigation and safety
* Food, clothing and shelter
* Health and fitness
