Summary

Completely updated to reflect the latest in paddling technology, William Nealy's classic illustrated kayaking skills manual is dead-on hilarious.Kayakenlightens and entertains. From hardcore hippy hairboaters who used to catch air in their block-long Dancers to insane youngsters clattering tiny play boats down steep creeks with more rocks than water, Nealy is back and more useful and entertaining than ever. You may break a rib laughing, but with Nealy holding your hand you'll be less likely to break a bone while boofing an insane rapid or maybe an entire waterfall.

Author Biography

Excerpts

Hump Jumping It's hard to "get air" going off a big slanting drop. However, you can use irregularities on the face of the drop (humps, bumps) as mini ski ramps to launch from. When contemplating a hump jump ALWAYS inspect your launch hump carefully...an upstream-pointing face irregularity can pin you or literally rip the bottom out of your boat (and you)! By studying aeriation (or lack of aeriation) on or near the hump you can make a number of safety oriented decisions.
