Playak editors hand-pick the best headlines 24/7, and those that are viewed most by our readers are sent out in the News Flash. Each Friday, we send out the Weekly Digest (instead of the daily News Flash), containing the top headlines of the past 7 days, as well as the most popular videos and forum topics, plus a list of upcoming events.

CKS Blog The Astral Brewer Water Shoe Review
CKS Blog - River footwear is not always the most exciting topic in the world to talk or write about. There are A LOT of very similar models of shoes for you and your kayak, and most of them work pretty darn well.
AquatiKayak In memory of Ian Beecroft
AquatiKayak - On August 26th we are to meet in Leh with Ian Beecroft, Graham Helsby and Beth Hume. We arrived earlier to acclimatize. The first days in Leh are tough, the arrival by plane at 3500m put me out. After three days in Leh spending my time sleeping, I am finally able to go on a short treck, and the ninth day, to go higher up in altitude.
Titan Kayaks French Freestyle Champs
Titan Kayaks - Congratulations to french paddler J-Yves Moustrou for putting up a great fight and taking 3rd place in the senior C1 category at this years French Freestyle Kayak Champs.
Level 6 Revelstoked
Level 6 - BC is my favourite place to paddle. Ample water from April til October, tight canyons, big waterfalls, large rivers and even some good playboating make it an ideal destination for every type of boater. Especially if you’re like me and you enjoy all aspects.
Jackson Kayak Lava Canyon
Jackson Kayak - The water has been low in the PNW, even on the OP. Still, here’s water to be found. One only need travel “a little higher in the drainage”. One place I’ve really wanted to check out the past few years is Lava Canyon on Mt St Helens.
Nick Bennett A Whitewater Residential
Nick Bennett - This last weekend saw the first weekend away of the semester for EUCC (both C's stand for Carnage!). As ever with the residential trips almost as much river water was consumed as beer, and the Saturday night set the bar high with a game of wizards.

Astral Currently AK Update
Astral Currently - Paddling in Alaska is a lot like one might assume it to be; amazing, incredibly beautiful, and slightly more remote and adventure ridden than the average roadside run.  The river will undoubtedly be full of wood and portages often involve Devil’s Club (which is a hand stinger and a drysuit’s worst nightmare), Alders, and the uncertainty of bears.
Mike Dawson Extreme Kayak World Championships
Mike Dawson - A major part of my season wrapped up over the weekend with the Adidas Sickline Extreme Kayak World Championships finishing on Saturday.
Bliss-Stick US Moose Fest
Bliss-Stick US - The Moose River Festival is upon us again and the Bliss-Stick US will be there! I will be sending in a couple of updates pertaining to the Northeast’s largest kayak festival.
