Playak News Watch
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.

My whitewater kayak students often hear me say ‘we’re all in between swims,’ and I’ve had the recent opportunity to prove myself right. When I swim, I swim. What I mean by that is I don’t waste time floating on my back in ‘safe swimmers position.’ I look to the nearest, most accessible shore and get my butt there. In Class III it’s easy for me to stay calm and collect all of my own gear because I know that the consequences are relatively low and I’m accustomed to performing rescues in that class of water. read more...

Fall is my favorite. The cottonwoods are flaming, geese are in the sky, ice in the water jug in the morning, blustery days on the water, everything ebbing toward winter. Part of the attraction is that most people are done – back to school, or work, or on to other activities. Paddling in October in Montana, or November some years, or March, for that matter – it just doesn’t cross people’s minds. All the better, because I have the river to myself. Weather can be an issue, sure, but if I’m ready for it, no big deal. A few key pieces of gear make it workable. No, more than workable . . . so nice it makes me smug. read more...
