As a former adventure training instructor for the Australian Defence Forces, Philip Woodhouse has instructed both civilian and defense force personnel in outdoors leadership activities. As the training coordinator for the Victorian Sea Kayaking Club he developed this manual on sea kayaking focusing on, but not limited to, the Southern Hemisphere. In his new guide, “Sea Kayaking: A Guide for Sea Canoeists” (published by Balboa Press), which has received endorsements from the Victorian Sea Kayak Club and East Coast Kayaking, Woodhouse passes his knowledge on to other kayakers who are planning to brave the open waters of Australasia.
Perfect for novice kayakers as well as seasoned professionals, “Sea Kayaking” presents a wealth of information regarding the many different facets of sea kayaking in the Southern Hemisphere. Woodhouse begins with the basics, instructing readers on different boat designs and repairs, and preparing their minds and bodies for the trip. His advice covers safety strategies, navigation and meteorology as well as environmental conservation.
Woodhouse has extensively paddled in Australia. “Sea Kayaking” prepares any reader considering a trip in this area of the world. The book is not limited in its use to just the Southern Hemisphere as the author goes into the theory and fundamentals of kayaking as applicable all over the world. Woodhouse compares the Southern and Northern Hemispheres, including information on weather patterns, navigation laws and terminologies, to prepare readers for the challenges they may face.
“The book is based around touring/expedition kayaking,” Woodhouse remarks, “but whatever the choice of recreation undertaken in a kayak, the main aim is to be safe, enjoy your relaxation time and protect the environment.”
