New Zealand kayak manufacturer, Bliss-Stick's FlipStick rodeo kayak.


Magazine: After following a link to a new kayaking website www.kayaksession.com and arranging for a promo copy to be sent for this review, I anxiously checked my mailbox daily for two weeks.

Finally upon arrival (it came from France of all places!) I was relieved that my waiting was not in vain. This magazine should come in a plain brown wrapper... this is the stuff we asked for, what we needed - "paddler's porn".

This is a beautiful magazine, oversize glossy pages with the best colour photographs I have ever seen in a magazine. They have spared no expense or effort to produce the slickest, coolest, and absolutely the most-stuffed-with-awesome-content magazine.

The issue I have, #2, highlighed Dustin Knapp's first descent of Tenaya Creek, an incredible 800 foot natural waterslide in California. Also in this issue is an instructional article on Freewheeling by veteran rodeo star Eric Jackson. Paddling destinations in Newfoundland and Mexico were illustrated with stunning pictures. All told it was 75 pages of hardcore kayak porn.

Track down a copy at your favourite paddling store, see for yourself. I guarantee you will be signing up online for your subscription and salivating for the next issue.

Two Dog River - A book by Richard Day
