Red 12’6″ Explorer ISUP Review

iSUPworld (1 hour ago) - Red is known for making some of the best quality inflatable SUP’s on the market. I first tried a Red paddle board in the Cook Islands several years ago. I rented one for the majority of my vacation and it was then that I fell in love with stand-up paddling. I was excited to try out and review some of their newer boards. This Red 126” Explorer did not disappoint and has a ton of great features.  read more...

Exploring the Connecticut River, Miles 132-124

YakAngler (5 hrs. ago) - When I moved to New Hampshire over six years ago, I was excited about the fact that I was less than an hour away from the longest river in New England. 410 miles long, the Connecticut River..

Well, I’ve vowed to change that, and over the next two years I want to become familiar with the waters close to me. I’ll eventually try to kayak and fish the entire river and some of its tributaries..  read more...
