Kayak Balance Exercise

A few mnths ago I wrote a piece about the 5 Star Training session I did with Gordon Brown of Skyak Adventures. (Incidentally, Mark Tozer has written a good piece about 5* assessment).

Quite a few of you enjoyed and linked to it. I know someone even practiced the balance session I described as part of Day Three.

Since I was mucking about with my cameras, testing the GoPro compared to the Oregon Scientific ATC 9K, I thought I'd have a go at the routine. As you can see, I still need a lot of practice!

If you enjoyed this, please click on a few adverts - it really does help!

Nice one Simon...It would have been a laugh to use that camera when we were trying this in Kyle Rhea.
Cheers Tony

Bravo Sir!

Now let's see you try it in the Nordy! :o)

Nordkapp version is a lot shorter ;-)

I can get around the kayak, but there's no way I can stand!
