Kayak News

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.

Everglades National Park, Florida

Canoe Kayak (25 min. ago) - No introduction is needed for this sprawling park at the tip of Florida-it is one of the flattest, most visited, most studied, most threatened units in the National Park system. What is not so well-known, however, is that the park has marked a 99-mile inside water route, from Everglades City, in the northwest Everglades, to Flamingo, in the southern reaches of the National Park land mass.  read more...

TV2 Norway – Kayaking Accident Story

unsponsored (2 hrs. ago) - In July 2014 Josh Neilson was kayaking with friends in Norway near Sjoa. After 5 of his crew paddled ‘Matzes Drop’ it was his turn. After a good entry the nose of his kayak was thrust into the air and caused him to fly through the air and land at the bottom in an undesirable way. At the moment of impact he broke his back and had to be flown to Lillehammer hospital and then on to Elverum for surgery. One year of rehab later and he returns to Voss in Norway for Ekstremsportveko and to go kayaking.  read more...

KayakQuixotica (4 hrs. ago) - Sue and I often say, This isn’t our first rodeo.I’m sure that doesn’t sound romantic, but it’s true, honest and practical. We both realized that just because you make a big deal about your wedding or spend yourself into the ground, it doesn’t mean it will last.  read more...
