Playak News Watch
Covering the World's Paddling News by the Minute!
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.
