Escape to the Water Blog
To give canoeists and kayakers an online place to call home, Johnson Outdoors has launched a new website dedicated to paddlesports. According to Luke LaBree, Marketing Manager for Johnson Outdoors Paddlesports, “

Sea Kayaking with Kids
Brooke was giddy with excitement all morning. She was only 4 and we were heading out for a day-long sea kayaking tour of British Columbia’s Barkley Sound. I put her up front in a double, a nylon spray skirt with suspenders rainbowing over her life jacket to keep splashes at bay.

The Great Rudder / Skeg Debate
Few subjects are as controversial to some sea kayakers as the choice of rudder or skeg. The debate has raged on for decades fueled by misinformation, entrenched narrow-mindedness, and plain good old ignorance. In other words, we paddlers have had a really good time with it...
