    • What does your kayak say about you?
    “For sale: Used Valley Qajariaq. Good condition. Some spider cracking. $1,600.” Like pets, we choose boats that resemble us, and how we see ourselves. In my case: tall, skinny, serious, slow-twitch for long distances, but with idiosyncrasies—design quirks and bit of a playful side. Follow these intuitions and they can guide us to a perfect fit. Ignore them at our…

About Adventure Kayak Magazine

Adventure Kayak is the international paddling magazine for sea kayakers, touring kayakers and lakewater kayakers. Adventure Kayak is smart, informative and action-packed editorial, mixing in the soft-sided human-interest stories and the lifestyle that is this sport's massive appeal. We believe paddling should be daily recreation, not a once-in-a-lifetime vacation. Our award-winning writers file stories from all over the world, from multi-month expeditions to inland waterways where our readers live, work and play.

About Rapid Media

What began in the summer of '98 as scribbles on a bar napkin is now the world's best paddlesports media company. Rapid Media has four paddling magazines, produces an international paddling film festival, had the very first paddling and fishing magazines in iTunes, and is the official partner of both the American Canoe Association and Paddle Canada. We're proud of all this, but the real reason we're the best is because we paddle and we care.
