A Solo Sea Kayaking Journey Around New Zealand's South IslandBook - 2003
In this sea-kayaking adventure, award-winning author Duff places readers in the cockpit of his 18-foot kayak and lets them experience the full power and beauty of the Southern Ocean and the wild energy of the Tasman Sea as it thunders onto New Zealand's uninhabited west coast. Not just an account of human physical endurance and determination to attempt what had only been accomplished once before, this narrative reveals the philosophical and psychological life of a man who has chosen the sea as the master to learn from. The intense and often terrifying sea journey is balanced by serendipitous meetings along the way with the friendly New Zealanders and with the diverse wildlife of this tiny and remote island country.
