Whitewater Kayaking: The Ultimate Guide is the established “Bible” of whitewater kayaking and the most comprehensive guide available on the sport, now fully updated with all the latest tips and tricks as well as all new, full color photography. Kayaking for Fitness was written for all levels of kayakers, from those just discovering that kayaking can be a great low-impact way to get and stay in shape, to more serious athletes.
