My husband and I love to recreational kayak and even have a well known website on kayaking in Oklahoma. We both look forward to receiving this magazine every couple of months because of it's great photos and features.
Every year I buy this for my husband, but I enjoy it as much as he does. Reading the stories and seeing the photos really inspire us to get away from the computer, toss the boats in the truck and hit the water.
I highly recommend this magazine, it's inexpensive, has great features & photos and it helps you "get away from it all" even when you're stuck inside.
I think this is definately more geared toward the leisure kayaker. At least that is according to my husband. He enjoys the magazine, but for someone who is looking to read more about adventure and class IV's, this isn't exactly where you'll find it. Overall a good mag, but not renewing it based on the adventure aspect.
