If you haven’t discovered it already, check out California Kayaker Magazine, available online and in hard copy at kayak outfitters and other outdoor recreation stores. This free publication has just launched its second issue. The mag covers a wide range of topics, from paddling techniques to personality profiles to kayaking trips (including an expanded version of NorCal Yak’s American River “bridge tour” in the summer issue).
Editor-Publisher Peter Donohue already has plans to expand the scope and coverage of his ambitious, San Francisco-based publication, with an eye toward Southern California and other Western states. It just underscores the fact that California has more dedicated kayakers, and more paddling opportunities, than anywhere in the country. If you don’t find copies of the mag at your local kayak shop, ask your dealer to start carrying it.
