Kayak: The New Frontier
This is the 2007 second edition of William Nealy's cult manual of intermediate and advanced whitewater techniques. Carefully crafted to reflect the latest in paddling technology, this illustrated skills manual remains dead-on hilarious. In Nealy's day, hardcore hippie hairboaters sucked air in block-long Dancers, but that was then. Today, insane youngsters steer tiny plastic boats down steep creeks with more rocks than water, and they surf spinning holes and standing waves for hours. Although shorter hair and more frequent bathing will never threaten the soundness of Nealy's illustrated techniques, equipment evolution - especially boats - has created new dynamics between moving water and modern-day paddlers. Professionally updated to reflect the latest technology, this book is now more useful and entertaining than ever. You may break a rib laughing, but with Nealy holding your hand, you'll look pretty cool doing it. The publisher confidently claims that this is the best-selling how-to-kayak manual in the world!
