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.

Worth the wait... Nookie Rapid Semi-Dry Trousers

Nookie (1 hour ago) - The Rapid Semi Dry Trousers are the first pair of semi-dry trousers in the Nookie range for a number of years and they are worth the wait.

The 2015 Fun!

Jackson Kayak (3 hrs. ago) - If I had to live in a world where I could only have one boat, this is that boat. It has displaced my beloved Fun Runner from that position. If you have paddled any of the previous fun series iterations and find yourself liking the style of boat, you are in for a treat.  read more...

Try something new

YakAngler (3 hrs. ago) - I will admit it. I am a power fisherman. Spinners, crankbaits, lipless cranks, spoons and square bills are my usual arsenal. Most days I am able to catch my fair share of fish with my favorites, but today was just not that day. I spent nearly 4 hours fishing my home waters at Stillhouse Hollow Lake in Killeen, TX with my normal approach. I find the grass, get into casting distance and start hammering the deep edges of the grass with the usual suspects.   read more...

Middle Kaweah

The Next Horizon Line (5 hrs. ago) - As my brother eluded to in the previous post, we spent a lot of time at the Kaweahs thanks to stellar hosting by Darin Mcquoid and Shanamar Dewey.  We arrived in Three Rivers hot off a quick run on the Dinkey Creek Waterfalls just before the run dropped out.   read more...

Competing at Night: World Cup Finals

Jackson Kayak (7 hrs. ago) - World Cup this year was an amazing trip. We had a lot of fun just traveling together in a big group with a lot of my close friends. We also pulled out some tourist stops and visited a couple beaches, ate some good sea food at the Mediterranean and did some good kayaking too. Though one of most favorite times was being able to kayak at night for the Finals of the last event of the World Cup in Sort.  read more...
