How to get your kayak off your roof racks on your own (video)

When loading and moving kayaks, we do not always have the convenience of another person around to assist. 

If you do not have your technique sorted, getting a kayak off a roof on your own can result in near decapitation, twisted wrists and pulled shoulders. Avoid the hospital by using this tried-and-tested technique.

The kayak in this video is a Tarka. For bigger, heavier kayaks like the Kasai, Marimba or Mazowe, place a towel over the back of the car to protect your paint as you slide the kayak down.
