      I like wearing hospital shoes when I wear my drysuit, (the white ones made of foam the nurses wear). I find they protect my feet are easy to get on/off, help with floatation and don't put a hole in the drysuit when on land. Just a tip I do.

      I find it  interesting  that  the  paddle  blades are on  the same  plane as  each  other  rather than  being  at  an  angle  to  each  other

      NEW ZEALAND = NEWSY LAND. They probably make much of the news in NEWSY LAND. The COPYRIGHT and REIGISTERED TRADE MARK symbols are MAPS. REGIS TAR TRADE MARK.

    13. Aaron Dover says:

      Use the STAR BOARD GUYS (GUISE) not the ROPEY MAP

      Without doubt the most informative kayaking video I've seen. I'm new to all of this at the grand old age of 52 and although I'm only sticking to my local river Avon in Stratford U K I'm absolutely LOVING It!

      Thanks again, can't wait to watch them all now I've subscribed.

      I've seen many vids..this is one that is well informative and nicely paced..Thank all involved..John and the Motley Crew too..,;-0)

      As a beginner kayaker, I am SO appreciative of these videos. Informative, entertaining, and very in-depth. Plus there is actually some production value. My boyfriend and I will stream episodes on the TV and watch it as if it were a documentary! Would love to see more.

      I've kayaked a lot in Seattle but only on relatively mild waters (lake union and lake washington). I think I'm about to buy a kayak and learn how to sail with it. kind of excited. love the idea of offshore kayaking too, going somewhere remote over deep water.
