The Playak News Watch continously finds the world"s new paddling headlines.
From the huge number of headlines it finds,
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.
