Check out all the quality content coming from our community of paddlers, both whitewater kayaking and kayak fishing. Tune in, read up and get psyched. This is the Friday’s Finds, where we seek to highlight some of the paddlers who call Virginia home. PaddleVa is about all of us. While some of the stuff shared in these posts will come from outside our waters, Virginia will always be the primary focus.

First Up:

The 9th Annual YakAttack Tournament went down almost a month ago, and it once again proved to be a hot ticket. The Tournament is a benefit event to raise money for Heroes on the Water and Project Healing Waters. It's one of the finest tournaments in the country. Here is their re-cap video.


Second Up:

Rob Choi, Ocean Kayak Pro, can normally be found in the saltwater hooking large trophies. But these days he's been hitting a little freshwater closer to home. He's still catching trophies. RMFC.

Third Up:

Famagogo is the Holcombe family adventure media squad that lives and breathes the road life. They've got a Winnebago and they get after it. Here is their year 3 video. Makes me want to get on the road!


Fourth Up:

Pyranha Kayaks has released the Machno and it looks to be a hot little whitewater boat. Here is a quick teaser vid the crew put out recently.


Fifth Up:

John Oast, Old Town Canoe Pro, was one of the many pros who came to help out at our Demo Day this year. Thanks John! And he recorded a video about his experience. Check it out.
