Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown

I pinched this pic from Gordon's Site

Gordon Brown



I got this last week from EK. I love kayak porn and I was as excited as a small boy waiting for Santa. When it came, I cleared the decks of family and chores then settled in with a snack and a nice beer (John Smiths Extra Smooth, actually) for some kayaking pleasure. To my surprise, it is much more than kayaking porn and actually full of good instruction which encourages you to go out and practice. The trip along the coast of Skye was nice and my only criticism was that it was way too short. Clearly, it sets the stage for extra volumes but they should have padded out this one with some gratuitous paddling about in boats. The production values are really nice and I’m glad I have it. The instruction is great for repeat value but the Skye trip is too short and not very action packed. Still, it’s a pretty good addition to a sound kayaking DVD library.

    Hi rjimlad – sorry it wasn’t as porny as you like it!

    But huge thanks for the positive criticism. We really appreciate knowing you felt the Skye sections too short as it contrasts with what others have said – some of whom feel a journey shouldn’t be in a coaching DVD.

    We’re planning Volume 2 now, and we will get into much bigger conditions. Not sure if it’ll count as kayak porn though!

    Keep up the blogging.

    The journey gives context to the training. It would be a very short DVD if it were just the coaching. Can’t wait for volume 2.

      Hi Andy. Just checked your site and I have to say I’d love to paddle your coastline. Your group looks a lot like the Hunter Kayak Klan so I’ll say cheerio from our klan to yours.
