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.

Safety Lasso for Inflatable SUPs

Rob Casey (1 hour ago) - Having difficult climbing back on your 6-8" thick inflatable SUP?

Lake Carl Blackwell - 2

Log of Ibi (2 hrs. ago) - An egret seaching along the shore for breakfast. Lake Carl Blackwell is beautiful. It lies 6.8 miles west of the west edge of Stillwater, OK.

The ravines or canyons the lake filled created a half-dozen fingers that not only give the lake its long shoreline, but also a number of havens for fish and wildlife. All the facilities are concentrated in the southeast corner of the lake, leaving all the rest of the shore...  read more...
