Whitewater Kayaking with Ken Whiting

The Kayak Roll

The Kayak Roll by Kent Ford

Kent is my friend so please buy this.

The Kayak Roll is perhaps the most sought after skill of kayaking. Paddlers know that a roll gives them confidence and control. But learning (or teaching) the roll can be an exercise in frustration. No longer. The KAYAK ROLL Provids a clear and precise rolling lesson.


Whitewater Self Defense

Whitewater Self Defense by Kent Ford and Charlie Walbridge

Another Kent Ford Masterpiece. I use the swim chapter all the time to prepare Upper Animas rafting clients.

Whitewater Self Defense helps paddlers avoid trouble and deal with unexpected problems. The emphasis is "everyday" river rescue, and fundamental skills every whitewater paddler should know. Includes new and proven safety techniques, bridging the gap between basic safety techniques and hard core river rescue.
