Buying Books on Kayaking

Select from our range of the best books on kayaking chosen by our staff. Gain inspiration, information, and advice.

Learn about the history of the sport, and the lives of those who paved the way. If you are new to paddling, then reading one of these will be a great way to get started building your knowledge base. If you're an experienced adventurer, then these classics should be the ones to line your shelf. Make sure you've read them all!

They make fantastic gifts. If you're not sure where to begin, then we recommend multisport paddlers start with Steve's Lucky Legs, and whitewater paddlers should not go past Graham Charles' New Zealand Whitewater.

If you have any questions, or need help selecting the best book on kayaking for yourself, feel free to contact our team any time. We have read them all, and love them.
