The world's latest paddling headlines.
Canoe Roots Dispelling five familiar, false facts about canoeists
Canoe Roots - After a decade of columns in this space dedicated to the history, heritage, esoterica and minutiae of canoeing, written for paddlers and would-be paddlers, it occurred to me that there might be people out there who are non-paddlers. Maybe the spouses or children of readers, who might pick up Canoeroots out of curiosity or from self-preservation having to share living space with a person who goes on and on about all things canoe. For the benefit of these folk, here’s a debunker’s guide to the paddling mythosphere.

Kayak Angler Magazine SUP fishing with the Red Paddle Co 10’8” Activ
Kayak Angler Magazine - At 10-feet, eight-inches long and 34-inches wide, the Activ MSL is perfect for quick trips and skinny water. My favorite fishing hole is sheltered and pretty small, so it’s easier to launch the Activ than dragging around a kayak or hard board. The boat is short for quick moves and wide for rock-solid stability. The Activ is a reliable platform for fishing and paddling.
SeaKayakPhoto.com Grey Moidart skies and green seas
SeaKayakPhoto.com - As we carried the boats to the water's edge, low grey clouds were streaming from the summits of hidden mountains to our east.

Although the clouds were scudding over head we were paddling in the lee of the cliffs until we passed the ancient crofting township of Smirisary.

Irene's Kayaking Blog Get the most essential skill required for white water kayaking right
Irene's Kayaking Blog - This is a post I’ve been meaning to write for a long time. Whether you’re a beginner/intermediate whitewater kayaker or a “gnar” paddler who occasionally coaches others (especially if “other” is a significant other), I hope you’ll find it’s worth your while.

A good forward stroke is the absolute key to pretty much everything else you’ll want to accomplish in whitewater kayaking (aside from a dependable roll, which is also super important).
