A description of a basic wet layering system for paddlers new to the sport of kayaking. Whether fishing from a kayak, river paddling or developing hard core sea kayaking skills, NOMAD Sea Kayaking cover the simple basics of what to wear and how to wear it whilst maintaining a tight budget until you are ready to take the plunge and commit.

The video covers just the basics needed to get started with the emphasis on;
1) Layering your clothing.
2) Avoiding cotton and denim.
3) Using good quality wool as much as possible and
4) dressing for submersion

There is a little bad language in the 'Blooper' at the end of the video so be aware. And have a look at the following links to related articles that you may find interesting Outdoor Research Mitts and Wind Anorak and Armadillo Merino Johnnies

Since trying to surf with the pros as a kid in Durban South Africa on my hollow 12ft ‘barge’ & getting absolutely trashed, I was hooked on sea paddling. Over a period of thirty-five years I’ve surfed, white watered & sea kayaked in locations around the world. I've guided as a full-time professional for the past sixteen years and my journey continues.
