Launching/Landing from a High Dock

In this video clip, Shawna and Leon from BodyBoatBlade demonstrate a fun way to get on and off the water from a high dock.

This method is not recommended for beginning kayakers or those who may not be the most athletically inclined. Leon makes it look easy!

Know your own abilities and limitations! Be aware of the safety risks involved in such a launch/landing.
