Playak Weekly Digest
The world's top paddling links in week 43, 2012.
Jackson Kayak Sickline Race 2012
Jackson Kayak - Well, the 2012 Sickline extreme World Championships has come and gone. EJ, Dane and I all flew over to race at what I consider the hardest creek race ever.
Palm Blogs The Worst Expedition That Has Ever Taken Place
Palm Blogs - Following an impressive night in the Roy Bridge Hotel, we hovered in the car park and discussed an expedition so grand in scale that none of us would be able to afford it.
unsponsored Gopro Hero 2 Vs Gopro Hero 3
unsponsored - Aside from the smaller and lighter aspects of the change there are a number of other things that need to be considered particulary if you are upgrading from the 1 or 2 to the 3. The GoPro Hero 3 doesn’t come with a whole load of accessories.
Jackson Kayak Wave Surfing The 2013 Jk Star
Jackson Kayak - Here in Idaho we have a ton of waves on our. If you love to wave surf, blunt, and clean spin check out the new 2013 Jackson Kayak Star series. JK dealers have demos in stock and Alpenglow in Boise is your Idaho connection.
Paddling Instructor Could this be the First Kayak Lesson Caught on Film? [History Lesson]
Paddling Instructor - Back in 1930 UK explorer, H.G. Watkins (the guy in the photo above) gathered a team together to see if a new air route between Britain and Canada could be established rather then flying across the dangerous ocean. The proposed route was to cross the Arctic via the Faroes, Iceland , Greenland,...
Five 2 Nine Productions The Fall Road Trip
Five 2 Nine Productions - While I count myself lucky to spend so much time on the water, when I’m filming, the kayaking experience is different than that of a leisure trip. After a year in which I got to work on a lot of great projects, it was time to leave the camera home, head out and enjoy some rivers.
Nick Bennett World Class Play Boating in Scotland
Nick Bennett - Scotland is normally known for its steep creeks, haggis and highland cows, not for its play boating potential. However last week I was fortunate enough to get up to Oban and get out the short boat.
Jackson Kayak What Makes Jackson Kayak Creek Boats Stand Out‏
Jackson Kayak - In the world of expedition kayaking, weight can mean the world. Packed for an overnight trip, my 41lb Villain S now weighs the same as the average creek boat on the market.
Alpin Action Team Paddle Expo 2012
Alpin Action Team - Now, however, thanks to the new attires increasingly technical, we can say that it is only a change of season. You never stop paddling!
Palm Blogs Ben Brown in Gopro Promo
Palm Blogs - Go-Pro have stepped up again this week, launching their new Hero3: Black Edition, and guess who is one of the lucky athletes featured in the promo – Mr. Ben Brown!
Am. Whitewater Fall 2012 Tallulah
Am. Whitewater - Scheduled releases occur the first two weekends in April and the first three weekends in November. On Saturday 500 cfs is released and on Sunday 700 cfs. Boaters are allowed on the water once the level stabilizes, which is about 9:30 am; the water is turned off at 4 pm.
The Next Horizon Line Hunting the White Elephant
The Next Horizon Line - There were so many times during this day that we could have turned back. But instead we pushed on, searching for that fleeting beauty so pure that it seems to escape whenever it's within grasp. Kirk and I had stayed patient, avoiding the temptation of the sure thing at dawn.
Jackson Kayak The Rogue Hits The Grand Canyon
Jackson Kayak - The last days on the river were fantastic, even though there weren’t rapids like day 4. We were just living our nomadic life, moving downstream, taking in the beauty of the canyon. Discussing our plans to return to this awesomeness next year.
Nathan Pfeifer Dillon Falls to Meadow Camp
Nathan Pfeifer - Rarely do I find myself boating on the east side of the Cascades in Oregon. This is mainly due to a limited river selection, and frankly, with all the classic runs on the west side, it's hard to find the motivation to head over there.
unsponsored Wavesport Recon
unsponsored - I travelled just under two hours North for the official opening of North East Kayaks and Paddles (more on that in another post). Tom from Wavesport was there with one of the handful of final prototype Wavesport Recons currently in existence.
