Newby Looking for Advice
I am new to the sport of whitewater kayaking, though not new to whitewater. I was a rescue swimmer for the fire department swift-water rescue team and have been whitewater rafting a ton (although that was a few years ago).
I have some kayaking experience as I fish from a SOT kayak, but I'm sure there is a huge difference.
I guess I need to start with equipment. I still have a nice Kokatat PFD that I used for swiftwater rescue, and helmet.
What type of whitewater kayak should I purchase? (I will primarily be kayaking in northern California if that helps).
Any books or DVD's that I should begin looking at?
Thanks in advance for the help...
