    BoaterTalk has Forums

    If you want to discuss it, we have a place for you.

    BoaterTalk
    Ask general paddling questions of the community. Have your questions answered by people who really know their stuff.

    Whats SUP
    Like to stand? We have a place for you to get the low down on all the new SUP advancements and trends.

    SurfZone
    For those on the coast. If there is gravity involved, it's whitewater, and if it's whitewater, it's a BoaterTalk passion.

    RaftZone
    For our inflatable friends. You are the savior of kayakers on the long haul trips. The unsung heros of the expedition. You deserve a place to be appreciated. Here you go.

    Lost and Found
    Find or lose gear? Post it here. We've got people looking out for you and also relying on you.

    Planner
    Interested in making weekend plans? Have a permit and would like some support? Need a paddling hookup and tired of people thinking that means you're a swinger? This may be more appropriate to your needs.

    Liquid Lounge
    Hang back and throw down on off-topic disucssions. A bit of a Class V forum, but with the correct preparation and safety, a nice place to hang out and meet up.
