Five of the world's top female kayakers recently launched a web site by and for women.
The River Angels website, http://www.riverangels.com is a collaborative effort between Tanya Shuman (USA), Mariann Saether (NOR), Tanya Faux (AUS), Nikki Kelly (NZ), and Ruth Gordon (CDN). With expertise running the gamut from first descents to freestyle championships, the pros designed the site with an eye toward fostering the growth and development of women in whitewater kayaking. In addition to tips, gossip, clinic schedules, photo and video galleries, the site invites visitors to post their own trip reports and photos. "Kayaking is a passion we wanted to share with other women," explained Ruth Gordon. "Whether they're just getting started or looking to build skill and confidence, we want women to know they can find camaraderie and a supportive environment at http://www.riverangels.com
