"Getting through challenging sections is sometimes like playing chess with the ocean and surfing cleans my soul"

In a sea kayak you have two options: Skeg or rudder? Of course the rudder is the easiest choice, but how can we develop if we always choose the easiest? Think about it. When you find yourself close to other objects like rocks, beaches or just some wood floating around, the chances for damaging the rudder increase. The skeg is build more simple and you can rely on it a lot. Okay maybe that’s enough criticism of the rudder, so now you might be wondering how to use this awesome kind of equipment called the skeg.

Check out this video for a unique tutorial to answer just that question.
