  How can you help?  The best Places to Kayak in California Kayak Guide Book

To produce a guide of this caliber costs a daunting sum. I have created this beautiful guide entirely on my own, without any outside funding.  Your much needed support  by purchasing a guide and telling you paddling friends about it, will provide crucial assistance to cover the ongoing costs of continually updating this demanding and time consuming project.
