'When one of our coaches and paddlers asked coach Gerard from Shell Va'a where he got his, 'Theory and Technique Concepts' from, he replied, "I read all the books - Steve West books and whatever books I can get a hold of". You inspire us all and give words where there were none or little. Thank you so much. Your hard work is greatly appreciated world-wide from the big to the little fishes.'
Dani Gay - Lanikai CC Coach

'If you’re into, or not into, stand up paddling, but want to be educated where it comes from and what it stands for, read this book by Steve West. The more I read, the more I respect the real paddlers of the world!'
Luke Egan - Australian Surfing Legend.

'When you stay at a hotel for a stand up paddle race and open the drawer, this should be next to the Gideon's Bible. It is the must-have book for anyone who paddles SUPs!'.

'Be inspired by Stand Up Paddling – A Paddler’s Guide and join us as we ride the oceans of the world together'.
Travis Grant 2013 Moloka'i Champion

'I love the book. It's a brilliant piece of work, it's like a Lonely Planet Guide Book for Stand Up Paddling! I'm extremely impressed with how much research and time has been put into creating this book and I sincerely hope every stand up paddle fan out there goes and grabs a copy!'

306 pages. Ownership of an OC1 permits many benefits for the paddler, not least of which the option to train when you want without the need for others in the case of also being part of an OC6 or V6 crew. The benefits are far reaching and there are significant cross-flow affects into that of team-canoes, both in raising skill levels, fitness and ultimately for the purposes of crew selection, to which coaches will often resort as one of a series of mechanisms. This book is very probably over-due by a considerable number of years and in some sense the sport has certainly seen a peak and levelling off over the past ten years or so, but today in 2014, there's every reason to sense that the sport is once again experiencing a surge of renewed growth as it reaches ever newer gene pools far from the sports roots and origins. ISBN 978-0-9574664-4-9 Prices are inclusive of p&p no more to pay. More info.

292 pages of technical information mixed with some historical perspectives, this is the first book on the subject every produced. The complexities which V1 paddling can present on account of being rudderless and its asymmetrical geometry, may well combine to make it one of the most challenging paddle craft to master. With Tahitian mastery of the craft, an accepted cultural reality, the isolation of these beautiful and mysterious islands is a summation of the sport itself, a beautiful graceful art when perfected, but for the most part, something of a mystery as to how to make it so.
