HEADLINES

  • Kayakers shaken by shark attack in Australia - Perth Now (Australia) - October 12: Two men have described the frightening moment a shark attacked their inflatable kayak, knocking them into the water. The men, who were uninjured but shaken by the incident, said they were fishing inside the inflatable kayak when the shark attacked from the back of the vessel. One of the men, Andrej, said the force knocked them into the water and deflated two of three inflatable chambers of the kayak.

  • Dallas man nearing end of 4,000-mile canoe trip - The Town Talk (LA) - October 10: Keith Lynch left Twin Bridges, Montana, in early June. With very little paddling experience, he's weathered "conditions I had no business being in." He spends most nights sleeping in a tent and eating what he can cook in one pot over a small, portable stove. He's seen some of the most remote areas and breathtaking scenery the country has to offer... He hopes to hit land for the final time a few mile away from his home in Dallas before Thanksgiving.

  • Kayaks boom in popularity - Journal Times (WI) - October 4: The 2014 boating season may seem like a distant ship disappearing in the mist. But for Dunham's Sports Store Manager Todd Brunner, his best kayak sales of the year are still full-speed ahead. Kayak sales overtook canoe sales years ago and are still going strong, retailers say. And those purchases don't end when sailboat and yacht owners are pulling out their boats for the year; they're year-round. "The company will sell the most kayaks the day after Thanksgiving," said Brunner
