Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown

Gordon might be the newest member of the SKILS coaching team, but he has no shortage of experience and skills to allow you to develop. As an author, his book “Sea Kayak” (Pesda Press, 2006) has been reprinted ten times and has been referred to as ‘the bible of sea kayaking’. His series of instructional DVDs (Sunart Media, 2009, 2011 & 2013) have won awards for their content worldwide and he produced the world’s first sea kayak rescue video “Over… and Out” (Stable Recordings, 1992). He is just about to release his latest book “Sea Kayak Safety and Rescue” (Pesda Press, 2019). This unique program is tailored to you and your needs, taking you from your current level of ability and building on what you already know and do. Based in the South of the island, it is accessible and available. There is a choice of one, two or three days to allow you to develop your skills so you can get more out of your time on the water. You will work with Gordon to develop an individual action plan and use goal setting and feedback to achieve your desired level of success.
