I wanted to give a quick shout-out to Playak.com, a global, but mostly European, it seems, paddling portal site that picked up my little ole’ blog a couple weeks back. It appears to be run by serious kayakers from Europe and the U.S. and has a wide range of news, reviews, forums, images, links, etc. I especially like the rich paddling spot reviews, like this one, complete with pictures and Google maps. Very helpful. They coverage is global, but seems to be focused on whitewater. Not that that’s a bad thing – just don’t go there for your next trip in your 19′ touring boat.
