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.

12 hrs. agoLevel Six FB Named after a city in Lake of the Woods, in Northern Ontario Canada the Kenora jacket reflects the type of paddling found in this area. It needs to be very versatile, ready for large open water, small tight waterways surrounded by rugged rock shields, and a flurry of different weather patterns. Everything from hot humid days, to cold pouring rain and high winds. The Kenora is a full-featured 3-season recreational touring jacket that can handle a little bit of everything. It is very lightweight and compact thanks to our award-winning eXhaust 2.5 UL waterproof breathable nylon that is 40% lighter then regular 2.5 fabric. The UL fabric is combined with our regular eXhaust 2.5 on the high wear areas to give the ultimate combination of weight savings and abrasion resistance. It's as versatile as you are. — Products shown: Kenora Jacket.

As I paddled off the drop my bow lifted more than I wanted but luckily the impact was soft. Once I landed, I went deep – pinned against the river bed and could feel the rocks against my legs through my kayak. This freaked me out so I pulled my deck and swam for it. After some time, I surfaced behind the curtain of water. It was the most incredible view. Luckily there was a channel leading out from behind the waterfall so I swam ...
