Canoe Roots Hooked Up
Canoe Roots - My dad, not so much. All he thinks he needs is a canoe, a paddle, a Thermos of coffee, and the same silver spoon he’s been throwing since his big walleye on the Rupert River in 1985.
Canoe Roots Ways you can improvise your canoe by yourself
Canoe Roots - Canoes don’t stay the same forever. Wear, different paddling conditions and changing needs can all call for modifications. Many paddlers believe modifications are the domain of professional canoe builders, but there are many do-it-yourself modifications anyone can do. Try these to add value to your canoe in terms of comfort, performance and aesthetics

Adventure Kayak Benefits Of Weekend Sea Kayaking Trips
Adventure Kayak - I recently had the rare experience of getting away for a solo kayaking trip. Rare because responsible and gainfully employed fathers of young children do not just go away on solo trips in the wilderness it’s not like the wilderness gives you anything concrete to justify your reasons for going there.
Kayak Angler Magazine Advanced Paddling Techniques for More Efficient Control
Kayak Angler Magazine - The first thing you learn when paddling a kayak is extra strokes on the left turn the boat right, and extra strokes on the right make it turn left. For a sharper turn, drag the paddle blade on the side you want to turn. That’s it, right? Wrong.

Traversing - This year was our first visit to Canoecopia, the largest paddlesports consumer event in the world! Held in Madison, Wisconsin it was no short portage as we jumped into a rental car and drove over 1200 km (745 miles for our American readers) to see what it was all about.

Palm Blogs - Home to huge rapids and waves, hidden in the depths of a huge canyon, the Zambezi's rapids emerge directly from the base of Victoria Falls, a 100 m high, 2 km wide wonder of the world.

CKS Blog First Look: 2017 Jackson Kayak Antix Review
CKS Blog - I remember walking into the CKS Warehouse last summer and seeing a lime green mutant looking Jackson Kayak sitting on the front office desk. A few months later, we received our first truck load of the 2017 Jackson Kayak Antix, and upon first look, this boat appears to be a total quiver killer. We caught up with Colin Kemp, who pitched the boat to Jackson. He gave us a rundown on the history of the concept, inspiration for it’s design, and intended usage….
SUP Magazine SUP Foil Surfing With Sean Poynter
SUP Magazine - Professional SUP surfer and 2x ISA Gold Medalist Sean Poynter’s style is as silky smooth as they come. Put him on a foilboard, and well, even Skippy can’t compete with that smoothness.
SUP Magazine Gear Garage- Patching Your Board at Home
SUP Magazine - No one is happier about the growth of standup paddling than ding repair people. Big boards, high roof racks, busy races and a new wave of beginners have led to a boom in the repair business. Our hats are off to those tireless masters of resin and masking tape.
Jackson Kayak Why Bigger Isn't Always Better
Jackson Kayak - Last year, my small Karma felt too small for me, especially on bigger volume rivers multidays and while racing. Often, it felt like my stern would catch and sub-out, or that my boat was slower than my competitors.
