Video: 5 Most Common Kayaking Mistakes

Wondering what mistakes you might be making when you're learning whitewater kayaking? Here's a helpful and funny video from the Unsponsored kayaking blog. (There are a few good pointers after it looks like the video ends, so keep watching until the actual end.)

Just for perspective, one of the best kayakers I know says she likes to always have a little side to side lean in her boat, but she is SO good that I think it's like if Christina Aguilera said she likes to have a little bit of rasp in her voice... what would be a detriment to most people is so expertly applied and under such complete control that she uses it as a positive. If you're not boating Class IV and V with ease 300+ days a year like she is then I'd say stick to the advice in the video. :)
