"wondering why you have the paddle blade on your left. when i have my left foot in front, i typically have my paddle on the right, because it gives me a 'tripod stability'. any particular reason?"

Playak's Blog and

It's funny how has created its own dynamics over the past 3 years. When I started it, didn't have many social and community features, and getting all this started on was a matter of 60 minutes (thanks to did already have some social features back then (forums, friend system, blogs), so my idea was that everything on should be qualified content, as opposed to a total anarchy on Luckily, Guy and Greg are… Continue

My other choice was the Immersion Research dry suit and I went with the Kokatat because thebMEC had one I could try on and I was in the store this morning. I hate to spend that kind of money on a mail order suit that may not firn quite right. Price was close and I now have it. The paddle was there right beside the duit and somehow fellinto the shopping bag soI had to keep it.. Looking forwadd to getting both wet somtime today Cheers and regards to Helix Greg

Just a comment:
First off I love the albums feature on Playak.

Is there a way to attach/upload a GPX file of your trip to the albums?

It would be great to have a Map in the album itself that shows your track where the pictures have been taken. I see that it is possible to attach a mapview on each individual picture. That's a handy feature.

All my new gear and the squirt boat are here now and we have open water as well. this should make a good combination to learn squirting. I have some pool time available (and warm) which is also good. Cheers, Greg

Hi there Jeroen!
I´ve been trying to log onto It´s just not working out. I admit that I´m not the best man with computers but............this shouldn´t be a problem.

Do I need a new identity there (username & password) ?

Hey J
Good idea, I think this will make finding paddling contacts a little easier. Then we can carpool more and use less petro. Plus its worldwide baby!
