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.

Whitewater shoe Astral Rassler Review

CKS Blog (37 min. ago) - The Astral Rassler is the best creek boating shoe on the market. There, I said it. Astral, a company known for its passion for whitewater, hit the nail on the head, yet again, with the Rassler. Upon first glance, it is obvious that this is a whitewater shoe designed to handle whatever is thrown at it. Like all other Astral products, the Rassler was designed with water in mind. The hydrophobic canvas is lightweight, sheds water, and dries quickly without sacrificing durability.  read more...

Gear Review: The Astral Belt Pack PFD

SUP Examiner (1 hour ago) - Just as board designs have changed, so to have the belt pack style PFDs on offer.

As the name suggests, this PFD is designed to be worn at the waist. The straps are easily adjustable for a wide range of sizes and the excess can be tucked away out of sight.  read more...

Fun time kayaking with the ladies

Jackson Kayak (3 hrs. ago) - Last week, I went to the Pigeon River women’s paddle event, titled Dirty Bird Confidence Series. This was an awesome event, put on by Crystal Gustin, Nikki Malatin, and Katie Dean. We had a total of 26 women participate! I have had the opportunity to help out at several of these women paddling events in the past, and they are all awesome in their own way. The goal of this particular event, was to get more women out on the water together, and also to increase our comfort with playboating. There were 2 groups; a slicy boat group and a playboat group. The 2 groups played their way down the river, working on different moves depending on their boat type and skill level. There were even demo boats available by Jackson and Dagger! This was my first time ever paddling the regular sectio...  read more...
