The long awaited follow up to our Kayak 101/Basic Kayak Technique videos. In this video we go over advanced concepts like edging, bracing, draw strokes, rudder strokes and most importantly how to blend them all together. We focus on body mechanics in the kayak and how shifting our weight and rotating causes the kayak to respond. We hope you find this video useful and subscribe as we have lots of new how to videos coming out in the near future.
