News Watch

The Playak News Watch continously finds the world"s new paddling headlines. From the huge number of headlines it finds, Playak editors hand-pick and present the best ones (yes, that is very subjective, but they do their best to please our readers) every day, and those that then get the most reader views are sent out in the daily 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, and a list of upcoming paddling events.

The (Big) White Salmon River

Jackson Kayak (6 hrs. ago) - During my job interview for Wet Planet Whitewater Centre, I remember being asked what I knew about the area and what had drawn me to apply for a job here. I responded by just listing off famous rivers from the region like the Little White Salmon and the waterfalls found on Eagle Creek. I knew almost nothing about the other White Salmon river which the company is based on. Now I know it is one of the best and most special rivers I have ever experienced.  read more...
