The thrill of kayaking can quickly turn to panic if you don't know how to right a capsized kayak. The Eskimo Roll (the self-rescue technique of righting a capsized kayak without leaving the cockpit) is the key to building confidence for all paddling conditions. Written by the leading international sea kayaking authority Derek C. Hutchinson, Eskimo Rolling provides detailed instruction on how to perform this maneuver with skill and success. Look inside for: explanations and demonstrations of many different Eskimo Roll techniques; confidence-building exercises; action photos of the world's top sea kayakers performing a variety of rolling maneuvers; rolling techniques for both sea kayakers and whitewater paddlers; harrowing and humorous true-life rolling stories from expert kayakers.

He has also designed many of the world's leading sea kayaks. His other books include The Complete Book of Sea Kayaking, and Expedition Kayaking.
