"Great for those who already love kayaking "
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This book is great for those who already love short day trip outings in a kayak but want to take it that next step and do trips where a little bit more knowledge is needed. Great book very informative and easy to read.

Description

Sea kayaking is a major, year-round recreational activity in New Zealand. With its mild climate and wonderful coastline, New Zealand would have to be among the best places in the world to go sea kayaking. This new book by the very experienced Kerry Howe won't tell you how to paddle or brace -plenty of other books cover basic skills - but it will tell you how to plan a tour along the Kiwi coastline, and as such will fit neatly alongside New Holland's existing sea kayak titles (Sea Kayaker's Guide to New Zealand's North Island and...South Island). Chapter topics include an introduction to the New Zealand coast, general preparation, trip management, equipment on the beach and at sea, navigation, keeping in touch, getting weather information, calling for assistance, emergency gear, life in the cockpit, hazards at sea, and life on the shore. From how to pack a tow-rope in a Vegemite jar, or what to stow for beach camping, to the best way to deter sharks, Howe covers all the practical aspects of touring.
