This is a superb DVD, it is British made by two very experienced sea kayakers. The content begins with rescues and self rescues- some of these were familiar(from other productions like "Performance Sea Kayaking" etc), but there are many other techniques I'd never seen before. These are all shown in calm water at first then on much rougher sea to show how they do them in "real" conditions! The second part may be more UK specific with a whole section on safety- this includes a coastguard lecture(on flares,strobes, mobile phones,VHF etc) and watching the RNLI perform some rescues. This part I was particularly impressed with, as it explains so much about how the emergency services co-ordinate rescues and what kit is best carried "on person" at all times.
A truly valuable asset which I've watched many times already!
