Francesco Salvato has dedicated his life to the kayak and descended the rivers of all 5 continents. Much in demand as a teacher, his 30 years of experience have been concentrated in this video. Director of the Free Flow kayak School, master of kayaking, in charge of the training of instructors for the Italian Canoe and Kayak Federation, Francesco Salvato has written several books on the techniques of the kayak. His studies of physical education and of subjects linked to sports technique and instruction make Francesco one of the world’s great experts on kayak technique. A complete video, open to all, from the beginner to the expert kayaker. The technique of the kayak is addressed in a comprehensive way, starting with the basics and advancing to refined white water technique, river rescue and freestyle.

Sweet Protection have announced that they will be discontinuing the software range of products for 2020 and will be focussing solely on hardware and protection.
Paddlesports is refocused, but still central in brand DNA.
Back from the mid 80’s, when the founders of Sweet Protection fell in love with the local rivers and play spots, Paddlesports has been an important part of the brand DNA and history. After discontinuing the dry wear products going into 2020, the Paddlesports collection is now refocused on hardware and protection only.
We believe that discontinuing our dry wear products will allow us to focus even more on innovation and cutting-edge technology on helmets and protection for Paddlesports.
Day 2 and we move to the top end of the leg to try and maximise the transition of force, generated from the feet, through to the upper body. A brief description of the problems we commonly see and hopefully some ideas as to how we may address them.
This video is (perhaps) the first in a series which will explore the common errors in kayak technique. This episode is about the positioning and use of the feet. All opinions are personal and open to correction and discussion. I have deliberately not got involved with straps or pull bars in this episode.
