As I anxiously await the arrival of soon to be released DVDs, Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown, Volume 2 from Sunart Media and Sea Kayak Rescues (with Shawna Franklin and Leon Somme) from Reel Water Productions — both should arrive within the next two weeks! I discovered a couple of bonuses the other day.
While at the website for Sea Kayak with Gordon Brown, I noticed a “free downloads” button, of course I clicked it — and wow! An illustrated transcript of Volume 2 is available for download. Dig a bit deeper (scroll down the page) and you’ll find a transcript of Volume 1. SCORE!
It got better — then I surfed on over to Kayak Essentials to see if there was anything new, or that I couldn’t live without . Already having purchased both of their DVDs earlier in the year, I was pleased to discover that there too was a downloadable illustrated transcript for Sea Kayak Essentials.
The value of these transcripts can’t be under estimated. While they are meant to be used in conjunction with their respective DVDs, they contain a wealth of information that are easy to read. Additionally, by printing them out you can make margin notes, and highlight special points for yourself.
So, while I watch the mail (post), I’ve got transcripts to read, and re-read. Not to mention all the other things, including trying to get some fall (rougher water) paddling in.
I’ve provided links herein, and will be adding to my references page soon. The learning never stops–well I don’t know about the “after-life” and hope I don’t for a long time, but for now, keep on studying and learning.
