Playak News Watch

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.

Starboard's New IQ handle for the 2015 models

Atlantic Paddle Surfing (8 min. ago) - The new IQ handle is constructed from EVA to provide a soft and comfortable feel when carrying the board.  The handle itself is designed as two separate compartments. The outer layer is made of ABS and compressed into the EPS core and then secured with a layer of glass. The EVA handle is then fitted into the box sealed with a layer of silicon. This means the EVA handle is not fixed internally to the board, eliminating the chance of cracking or damaging the glass of EPS core.    read more...

Frogma (3 hrs. ago) - Told you so! Beets & herbs from the garden, the rest purchased for my Vacation Special Cooking Project. Big cooking day - Phase 1 of Pozole. Blow by blow account over on Facebook, but I'll collect and repost over here when it's done. Today is simmering. Monday's supposed to be rainy. I won't mind if it is, that would be perfect weather for messing around with chile-roasting and the other finishing touches.  read more...

Behind the Scenes: Bomber Gear Photoshoot

Confluence (4 hrs. ago) - Our team just returned from a fantastic time on location in California for the 2015 Bomber Gear line shoot, and we couldn’t help but share a sneak peek. The SUP and recreation product lines were shot near beautiful Sausalito, and the whitewater and sea kayaking pieces saw action in the waters off of Arcata. What a gorgeous set! We hope you enjoy the behind the scenes look, and stay tuned for the real thing coming soon!  read more...
