Paddling, Training and Racing Blogs - Update



There are not so many blogs devoted to kayak and canoe racing. Of course, many top racers have blogs linked to their general racing websites, but these are often more personal journals or records from racing events (see, e.g., links on flatwater.info).

Here is a short list of training and racing related blogs which I visit on a regular basis and waiting for new posts.

  • Peter’s Paddling Blog
    by Peter Unold from Denmark. Posts on kayak training and racing, new kayaks, gadgets. Pictures from racing event in Scandinavia, e.g., Tour de Gudenå.
  • Ultra Marathon Paddling
    by Heather and Brandon Nelson, ultra-marathon distance kayakers and adventurers. Different perspectives on racing in such events as Yukon River Quest 2006 or Length of the Lake 100 km race.
  • Motionpaddling
    Erik Arnström from Sweden: My interest is marathon, touring and sea kayaking. I paddle sea kayak since 1984 and racing since 1990. The site covers techniques, how to sit and trim a kayak, different equipment, my personal opinion about different modells and some news from the canoeing world.. Blog and associated web site are in Swedish. I am trying to translate and read whatever I can.
  • SandyBottom's Sea Kayaking and Kruger Paddling Adventures

  • The Purple Mirage Blog
