Basics of Kayak Surfing

Last year I created a surf kayaking presentation that I presented at WMCKA, and then did a surfing skills session at Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium. This presentation that will be presented in an updated form at Canoecopia in 2011.

I spent some time over the last month to throw together an article on a lot of very basic kayak surfing questions. What is it, what is a surf boat, what is a wave ski, can I surf with a white water boat and so forth. I get a lot of questions from students, white water enthusiasts, and sea kayakers on surf kayaking. This article doesn’t go into a ton of depth and is very basic content. Though if I oversimplified anything, let me know.

If you have any comments on this (link here) basic surf kayaking article please share them as I am looking to add to this particular piece of content over time.

Also I looked for a whitewater surfing fail video and couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, so let me know if you come across one.
