Kayak Draw Stroke (In-Water Recovery)
Kayak Draw Stroke Quite often, you'll want to go sideways with your kayak, maybe to get to a dock, maybe just to raft up with another kayaker who's got the snacks. In this short tutorial video, Mike Aronoff demonstrates the kayak draw stroke with an in-water recovery, and gives step-by-step instructions.

Canoe Ramp Fail
Canoe Ramp Fail In case you missed it, here's a humorous video that shows what happens when you take a 3-person canoe down a whitewater kayak ramp. Needless to say the canoe was just a bit too long for the kicker... However, it's the canoe that gets the last laugh as it stays afloat and gently drifts away from its passengers...

In The Same Boat: Camping Comfort - The Bathroom
Waking follows sleeping as day follows night. Poets have made much of this. But there's a similar temporal relationship between activities occurring at the opposite ends of the human gut, and for some reason the poets haven't found that subject quite so enticing. Paddlers can't ignore it, however. What goes in must come out. Which is why Tamia's tour of "Camp Comfort" ends in the bathroom. But don't worry, it's very tastefully done. And anyway, we're all In the Same Boat on this one, aren't we?

Kayak Photo Product Review Spotlight
Frontier 12 kayak by NuCanoe
This boat is amazingly stable. Within the first 30 seconds of her maiden voyage I was EASILY stand up paddling with a DOG (80lb pitbull) also standing and walking shifting her wait around on the stern. It's so stable that when my dog went for a swim and had trouble getting back aboard, I was able to stand up, reach over the side, and pull her by the scruff right back in. And I didn't buy the casting bar; it's just that stable. I'm 5'6 145lb, and I got no problems car topping this on my minivan solo. I really can't say enough about this boat; the reviews don't lie...
