The Endicott Files
featuring the works of William T. Endicott
Slalom racing enthusiasts will likely find items of interest in our latest project. We are putting the world renowned William T. Endicott books on top level paddlesports into eBook form.
Treasures of paddle sport are revealed as we post these archived works which have gone out of print. Author Bill Endicott has graciously permitted us to post these here. Crack teams of "top men" (and women) are working around the clock (well, we do stop to eat, sleep and paddle every now and then, don't we?) to get this out to you. Why?
One might assume that this material is outdated and obsolete. However, you know what happens when one assumes! As we read the texts, we repeatedly find nuggets of slalom wisdom along with gems of whitewater knowledge, while stubbing our toes on outright flashes of brilliance, all of which form the basis of sporting excellence.
The athlete "case studies" are particularly illuminating of the champion's day-to-day work ethic, training details, goal setting, and vision towards the top.
The Ultimate Run: Canoe Slalom at the Highest Levels is now complete. Within this work are champions case studies making for interesting reading for all of us who dream in slalom:
Kayak specialists might enjoy reading Norbert Sattler: "I like to paddle when the water is brown"; Richard Fox, 5x World Champion kayak technician; late bloomer Bronze Medalist Jean-Yves Prigent, and Czech Lubos Hilgert.
To Win The Worlds: A Textbook for Elite Slalomists and Their Coaches chapters 1-8 are complete.
From Chapter 5, C1 technique:
