Giddy all -

Does anyone know a New Zealand supplier / agent for this book? Can't find it anywhere thru the usual chains.

Cheers

Don't know of a NZ supplier but if you cannot get one there we can supply one from Oz. www.fitnesspaddlers.com.au
We have sent a number of them to NZ.

Deception with this book. Grey and small letters. Nothing new on the surfski teaching. Miss of order in the book without mentioning the way to star and insisting a little bit more in the solutions not to capsize and how avoid it.

Are you sure you've got the right book? Where is the deception???

You are incorrect on every point! The text is full colour. The book contains almost EVERY aspect of learning to surfski as developed through Dawid Mocke's surfski school over years of training people of all levels. The book starts with the basics and moves on to advanced topics, how is this "miss of order"? There are specific sections on recovering a capsize? Did you even read it? Are you even a surfski paddler?

Surfski with the Pro's is a full colour text interspersed with high quality photos and illustrations. It's currently the BIBLE of surfski training, there is no other book out there with this level of content.

Or perhaps you are right, guess maybe 3 x World Champion Surfskier Dawid Mocke and his Olympian kayaker and former World Champion Surfskier wife Nikki Mocke are maybe poor role models to learn from...

Regards
Jean.

I don't think slim white is a troll - I think it's more likely that there's a problem with translation. (He lives in Spain.)

But Slim White, it's true, your description of the book that you have doesn't sound at all like "Surfski with the Pros".

Is it this book you're talking about?

The text is in blueish small letters. I agree the book is in full colour the text is not easy to read.
Dawid Mocke, I agree, is a full champion but I am not judging his surfski carrier I am giving my opinion about the book and the poor method of order in the sections.You ask for my opinion in order to improve the book not to put honey on it. The book is fully understood but you have not take of all arguments and possibilities that offers the name of Mocke reputation.

Fair enough!

I believe there's an "advanced" book in the works, so perhaps that would give you what you're looking for.

So, I wait in the next edition big letters in black ink, because books are to be read in not only biblioteques, but in the beach, in the terrace, with sunlight.Do not consider my critics only to disturb you. Everything is possible to improve and my objections are made for that purpose.
