    Sea Kayak Strokes - A Guide to Efficient Paddling Skills, 153 pages, $17.95 USD (ISBN 970-1-894765-85-5)

    Author: Doug Alderson

    Copyright September 2007

    Published by Rocky Mountain Books

    This is a new book out, written by Canadian Doug Alderson. Alderson is a former BCU Coach 3 and currently chairman of Paddle Canada's Sea Kayak Program Development Committee.

    I found this book to be one of the best I've read when is comes to practical instruction. There is little wasted on the usual boat, equipment, and so on, usually found in kayaking books. Beginning in Chapter 1, Alderson gets right into Edge Control. Subsequent chapters are written on bracing, forward stroke, sweep strokes, rudder strokes, brace turns, draw strokes, and rolling. The final chapter focuses on blended strokes and their applications in windy conditions.

    The approach in each chapter is simple. Alderson introduces the stroke and supports each key aspect with very clear photgraphs. He then, in bullet form, covers safety considerations, the application of the stroke, key points to remember and finally exercises to practice it. This is a book that won't sit idle on the shelf!
