    Comments about Bracing Clinic "The Art of Staying Upright" DVD:

    USK's series of instructional sea kayaking DVDs are excellent to say the least. Yes, Ken Whiting's DVD does have great cinematography and is a polished production covering all the basics at an intro level, but if you want to see the details in technique, find lots of great training suggestions, listen to a thorough systematic explanation concern the "whys", "what ifs", and "here's how ya learn to do it", then you should choose to watch this bracing clinic DVD and other USK productions.

    I've been to a variety of sea kayaking day-long sea kayaking classes, but USK really does clarify what you need to know, and made me wonder what the point of the last sea kayaking class was; drag the clients out on the water and return without loosing anyone(?)

    Anyway, the DVD is well indexed so you can return to specific lessons in an organized manner.

    Truly excellent.
