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.

Inflatable Kayaks & Packrafts (2 hrs. ago) - As I predicted at the end of the IK Construction article a couple of years ago, before long someone was going to make a fully drop stitched IK.
