Kayak Rolling

This is the best video I've seen to take your kayak roll to the next level. It moves beyond sequential technique and gets into the base fundamentals that let you create your own roll.

Don’t believe everything you think.

This is pretty good. While improving, for a long time the sea kayaking community was sort of left behind the WW and surfski crowd. Somewhat logical, as the average sea kayaker age something in the mid-40s I would guess, but a low premium on fitness and a lot of people with very unrealistic expectations of what can be accomplished with a hand pump in an emergency.
One of the downsides of the Internet is that it allows like-minded people to form communities, and sometimes those communities are stupid.
