Playak News Watch

Covering the World's Paddling News by the Minute!

Kayak News

Playak News Flash

The famous Playak News Flash informs tens of thousands of paddlers around the world about the most popular paddling news each day. Playak editors hand-pick the best headlines 24/7, and those that are viewed most by our readers are sent out in the 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, plus a list of upcoming events.

So paddlers and beach-walkers can keep your eyes open this month for some citizen science opportunities on the Salish Sea.  read more...

Bitching It Up

worldkayak blogs (6 hrs. ago) - For many years I’ve wanted to get to the Bitches, the famous tidal playwave spot in South-West Wales that hosted the inaugural world rodeo freestyle event, back in the day when the boats were metres long and pop-outs, paddle-twirls and fluorescent colours were all the rage.  read more...

Discovery Island and a Sea Otter

Mike Jackson (8 hrs. ago) - A few years ago my wife bought a number of Tiger brand insulated stainless steel bottles and we still use them today. They keep everything cold for a long time and hot for a long time, depending on what you want to do. They have a fancy pop top and very nice Japanese engineering. They are also pretty expensive.  read more...
