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.

Hudson River Paddle Part 7 - Day 2 On the River: Bronck Island to N. Tivoli Bay

Frogma (14 min. ago) - Another long day, this time about 27 miles. Here's my 8/12 journal entry, with pictures thrown in.

Want to nab a surfing world record? It could be easier than you think

GrindTV On-Water (4 hrs. ago) - In 2012 Hawaiian Garrett McNamara was towed by Jet Ski in to a 78-foot-high wave ridden at Portugal’s Nazare.
