Covering the World's Paddling News by the Minute!

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.

Middle Kings as Good as It Gets

The Next Horizon Line (7 min. ago) - We had low flows this year (900 at rogers crossing) as a cold snap dropped the river through the ideal flow range in about 1 day.

Regardless, this is probably my favorite river trip in the world.  read more...

Highlights From Jersey’s Battle Of The Rock

SUPracer (6 hrs. ago) - A couple of solid highlight reels from the Battle of the Rock race that was held on Jersey last month. Seems like Jersey is becoming a bit of a paddling hub these days (we're talking about the isle of Jersey , not the American Jersey...). The island has a strong local race series, some epic downwind conditions and is now seeing some of the international names come over and compete.     read more...
