Becky Mason - Review Instructional Advanced Classic Solo Canoeing DVD
Advanced Classic Solo Canoeing DVD attracts National and International Media Attention


I was honoured and touched to learn the Advanced Classic Solo Canoeing movie won not only Best Educational and Safety Film but also Best Canadian filmmaker award at the Waterwalker Film Festival, a Paddle Canada sponsored festival named in honour of my Dad. It was truly a thrill to also learn that the DVD was awarded Best Instructional Film at the prestigious Reel Paddling Festival that is run by Rapid Media. Wow, I'm blushing!

She has a great ability to take very complex maneuver and break it down to 3-4 key points making it easy to remember.

Becky Mason's latest canoeing DVD is clearly her best. And I do mean clearly as there is also a Blu-ray version. Now, Becky is perfect as always but the production values really shine in this DVD.
