Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown is a coaching DVD like no other. Eight coaching sessions with one of the UK's top instructors lie at the heart of the production. Beginners and intermediates develop firm foundations, then progress through forward paddling, into turning, steering, tidal race paddling and eventually rock hopping in the roughest conditions.
The coaching is mixed with the story of a four-day voyage
by a group of kayakers along the exposed west coast of the Isle
of Skye. Under magnificent Cuillin mountain views they explore
caves, sea stacks and five thousand year old settlements.
