Kayak Surf Launch Fail
Kayak Fail Video This video proves that launching a kayak in the surf is not the easiest thing in the world... especially when attempted in powerful monsoon waves. Remember to paddle hard before the wave, then lean all your body weight and head forward to punch through the wave, or you'll end up doing the sand roll like this unfortunate kayaker.

The Allure of Canoeing Wild Northern Rivers
Northern River Canoeing Cliff Jacobson writes about what draws him to rivers in Canada over the tranquillity of Boundary Waters or similar, more-frequented quiet water destinations. If you love canoeing and camping as much as Cliff, and are willing to learn a few new skills, his latest article emphasizes why a wild northern river should be high on your bucket list.

In The Same Boat: Stuffing as a Meal
No holiday meal is complete without a side dish of stuffing, is it? But stuffing needn't be relegated to a supporting role. With a little effort on your part — very little effort — it can be the star of the show, the basis for a hearty one-pot meal that will warm the heart and stomach of any paddler on a chilly autumn evening. To learn more, check out Tamia's latest for In the Same Boat: "Stuffing — It's Not Just a Side Dish Anymore!"

Kayak Photo Product Review Spotlight
Frontier 12 kayak by NuCanoe
I can't imagine life without my Frontier... I've owned other kayaks but none are as comfortable or as stable. Tracks straight. Might not be the fastest yak on the water but it's an awesome fishing machine... Rating 10 of 10 by Jim Mello
Read more reviews or get more info on the Frontier 12 kayak.
