Besides just having a love of paddling, I enjoy helping new paddlers with the progression of their skills so that they are safe and comfortable kayaking anywhere from flat water to the open coast.
While I love paddling in rough water, I think the basics should be taught and practiced in flat water. My article Make Those Moves Muscle Memory for Canoe & Kayak Magazine describes the importance of flat water practice.
