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.

The Stern Squirt

Jackson Kayak (1 hour ago) - The stern squirt is one of the most classic things you can do in a kayak! Not only are its roots in the early days of freestyle, but being able to fly your stern under the water is a key component of slalom racing as well. Having a skill that is so well rounded is a must in every boaters quiver. The first thing we need is an appropriate boat. Some boats simply can not stern squirt based on what they were designed to do. For example a karma and a Zen are not the correct tool for this job due to the higher volume stern with a deck that is designed to shed water for creeking. A Fun, Fun Runner, or Rockstar are all great choices for this. They will all squirt a bit different so once you get your technique dialed try it in another boat, and keep an open mind that is willing to tweak things.  read more...
