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.

Progressing Into Whitewater Paddling: Arkansas River SUP Trip

SUP Examiner (1 hour ago) - Whitewater Paddling on the Arkansas River Up until this point, my river paddling experience had been limited to the South Platte River.

Sweet Protection Sabrosa Spray Top – First Look

unsponsored (2 hrs. ago) - The new Sweet Protection Sabrosa spray top is something that I have been waiting for from Sweet for some time. In most of my Sweet dry top reviews I have mentioned that a short sleeve version would be a great idea and it seems Sweet have listened. The cut and construction of their long sleeve tops and drysuits is superb so I am glad to see a short sleeve version coming to market. We have a Sabrosa landing very shortly at Unsponsored HQ for a full review.  read more...

Mill Creek - A West Virginia Jewel

Kokatat (2 hrs. ago) - Due to a crazy work year, my wife Diane and I have not been able to hit the river as much as we would like. Last year I logged sixty-two personal first descents, and this year I was only at seven. Perhaps that is why on a whim, with no water in Tennessee, Diane and I opted to drive north 4 1/2 hours to chase water in West Virginia. The Plan was to boat Mill Creek in the morning, before meeting up with a friend to run the easier Middle Meadow that the evening.  read more...
