A few book recommendations for paddlers and good suggestions for your Christmas list. Please let me know if you have any other favourites you would like to add to the list.
Here’s an additional link to Pesda press who publish many of the books Adam shows above plus it shows many sea kayaking books recommended by Paul H and a book on how to paddle a Sit on Top for Gary to read. Please note that from experience it’s worth searching places like Amazon and Play.com to get good prices on these books.

The level at Symonds Yat was high this Sunday but you can tell that the new improvements should make it much more usable with clearly defined lines which should produce good breakout practice opportunities. Although there were a few waves it was a bit high to see what good waves may form. The level on Sunday was a full steps depth above the wide bottom step and our estimate was that it could do with being 4″ to 6″ lower to be ideal.
