Following on from Doug Cooper's very successful ‘Sea Kayak Handling‘, his new book, ‘Rough Water Handling‘, takes us to the next level.

Here is part of the description from the Pesda Press site:

Doug draws on his personal and coaching experience to help the reader master sea kayak handling skills and techniques.
