BoaterTalk is a Social Network for people who love paddling whitewater.
It's your padding buddies, the people you have learned from, the people who have learned from you, your local dealers and outfitters, the companies that made your gear... and you.
Since 1996, we've been talking about paddling. We've been living it, breathing it, and dreaming about it. Welcome to our passion.
