So, you think you’re pretty good at rolling? Try swapping your paddle for a brick. In this video by filmmaker Andrew Elizaga, internationally renowned paddling instructor James Manke shares some tips for mastering the most difficult traditional Greenlandic kayak rolls. Among the hardest is a roll called the Ujaqqamik tigumisserlunii, or “holding a stone in one’s hand” roll, that involves using a 17-pound brick instead of a paddle. Manke won the 2014 National Greenland Kayaking Championship, in which there are 35 types of competitive rolls. Greenlandic Inuit peoples depended on the kayak (spelled ‘qajaq’) for hunting seals and fish. Rolling was a crucial self rescue skill when hunting in rough sea conditions, and the Inuit developed a vast number of complex and challenging methods of rolling.

Seeking the title “King of the Alps,” 90 paddlers chased each other down a Tyrolian river near the Italy-Austria border in June. Aerial drone footage shows the impressive spectacle as hordes of kayakers battle each other in a head-to-head race for the crown. Riding the early summer snowmelt, racers tested their mettle in a 6.5-kilometer mass start prelim. After quarterfinal and semifinal rounds, five finalists emerged to compete in the timed sprint down a section of Class V whitewater. The final time trial course was intense and technical and, in the end, Daniel Klotzner took home the men’s victory, and Pája Zasterova was crowned queen. –Check out MORE VIDEOS from C&K.

Seems it’s the age of the hybrid. Hybrid cars, hybrid vegetables, and from Old Town, their contribution to the hybrid era, the NEXT. A tweener solo boat touted for its ability to fit comfortably in both canoe and kayak realms. Bob McDonough, of Old Town’s design team, highlights the “open feel” of the boat. “It paddles like a kayak, but has the openness and ease of a canoe,” he stresses. “We wanted a boat that has the feel of a recreational kayak, a profile for low windage, lower seat level, and a hull that tracks nicely. We also worked for a more cutting bow to add some speed. Bottom line, we wanted a boat that’s easy to use.” I took it out and put it through the paces this fall – downriver, flats, some minor turbulence. Honestly, if I closed my eyes, I’d have to say that the hull felt like a kayak. That said, I’m pretty firmly in the canoe camp, so I tend to paddle single-blade, although I gave both their due. In the end, I found the boat more suited to double-bladed travel, desp......

By Larry Rice EVERGLADES NATIONAL PARK, FLORIDA: No introduction is needed for this sprawling park at the tip of Florida-it is one of the flattest, most visited, most studied, most threatened units in the National Park system. What is not so well-known, however, is that the park has marked a 99-mile inside water route, from Everglades City, in the northwest Everglades, to Flamingo, in the southern reaches of the National Park land mass. For those who have the time and the inclination to escape the crowds, there is no better way to experience the mangrove wilderness of Everglades National Park. What must surely be one of the most unusual trails in America, the Wilderness Waterway winds through a maze of brackish creeks, rivers, and large bays where once only mangrove-wise guides went. (Note: even though it’s called a “wilderness,” motorized boats are allowed throughout the Everglades; however, when I paddled the trail, I saw them infrequently, and on most days not at all.) Nearly every kind o......
