Baby Steps - Kayaking with a 2 yr. old

Nikki Rekman (45 min. ago) - Kayaking with my 2 year old has forced me to change my way of thinking. Around here, high flows are crucial for good river runs and 60 000 cfs need to be pumping through Sturgeon Falls for great surfing. But those levels aren't exactly toddler friendly.  read more...

Lexar 64GB 633x Micro SDXC Memory Card

unsponsored (7 hrs. ago) - The 633x cards are speed rated at Class 10, and leverage UHS-I technology to deliver a transfer speed up to 633x (95MB/s). This makes it perfect for filming at 2.7 and 4k. The card has been tried in various action POV cameras including my GoPro 3+ Black Edition, Contour Roam and Garmin Virb. In all cases it has been faultless.  read more...
