Covering the World's Paddling News by the Minute!
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.

Canoe Kayak (8 hrs. ago) -
As much as Mason, a filmmaker, painter, author and Canada’s most famous canoeist, praised his beloved wood-canvas Chestnut Prospector, a stalwart 17-foot aluminum Grumman was his go-to boat for introducing his young family to river tripping. Now, the venerable canoe is up for auction on eBay. While a 17-foot, flat-bottomed Grumman may not have the aesthetic appeal of a Chestnut, it’s a workhorse that did yeoman service for the Mason family.
