    How to paddle a kayak??? at any time in this video do you think he might
    have even touched a paddle?

    There isn’t even a paddle IN SIGHT. How about “looking at different kinds
    of kayaks”?

    I would not consider a 14′,25″ wide kayak a touring boat and with proper
    edging and strokes that “touring” boat can turn faster than the fat ones.

    This is mistitled – it’s about the variance between types of kayaks,
    nothing about how to paddle

    Never did I think someone could ramble on about flat water kayaking. You
    should try whitewater kayaking.

    You guys are beginners and want to know about whitewater kayaking? Excuse
    me? A beginner shouldn’t do that! But the only thing I see about paddling
    one is… nothing. He doesn’t even mention that you need one.

    The best thing about the sit-on-top kayak is that spiders can’t hide inside
    the boat.
