Boasting instant access to 272 screens featuring 10 video clips, 89 photos, and 16 slideshows, the newest iPad-compatible book from Human Kinetics presents the basics of the sport of kayaking. Kayaking, developed by experts at the American Canoe Association, takes an in-depth look at one of the fastest-growing outdoor activities—one that is enjoyed by nearly 17 million people—as well as the skills and knowledge required for becoming a successful paddler.

From an iPad, Kayaking explains the background knowledge, fitness fundamentals, equipment and gear selection, nutrition needs, and safety and survival skills required for a successful adventure. The app will also help readers build basic techniques, strokes, and maneuvers so that they can embark on adventures of increasing difficulty. Included are tips and instruction for the three most popular types of kayaking—sea, river, and whitewater.

With step-by-step instruction and expert advice, this appmakes it possible to explore waterways safely and confidently while building the skills needed to take part in more challenging trips. Its video clips, photos, and slideshows allows readers to see the progressive steps of a particular stroke or technique, making it an app they will use again and again as their enthusiasm for the sport, and for the outdoors, continues to grow.

Now available in Apple’s App Store, Kayaking is one of several iPad-specific books Human Kinetics is introducing throughout 2011, a list that includes Strength Ball Training, the NSCA Exercise Technique Manual for Resistance Training, Slowpitch Softball, Conditioning for Golf, Conditioning for Tennis, and Sports Massage.
