Want to capture epic first-person action photos, but don’t have a hand free? Pro kayaker Rafa Ortiz has a trick for you. It’ll cost you a quarter.
A couple months ago a friend of mine approached me with something that sounded insane. Did I want to kayak from Cuba to Florida? I hadn’t paddled in a year, it was just a month away, and I’d just broken a rib. It was almost certainly a very, very stupid idea. So I said yes.
Kayaking the entire 2,552-mile length of the Mississippi River has been a challenge. It would be for anyone, but for novice paddlers like me and the now heavily-bearded boyfriend, it amounted to the biggest challenge we’ve ever faced. Here’s why.
Alex Woodford is a 22-year old lady from England. Last year, while the two of us were camping with Bear Grylls, she told me she wanted to kayak the Mississippi from its headwaters in Minnesota all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. And now she’s doing it. — Ed.
The folding Oru Kayak goes from flatpack to floating in just minutes. Tough enough for the real world? We took it down the Colorado River, armed with a shotgun, to find out.
Spearfishing combines the thrill of the hunt with swimming in the ocean and eating healthy, tasty fish. We figured that sounded like fun so, last weekend, paddled kayaks to a remote beach and caught some fish.
Let me start this out by saying I didn't "hack" something in the black hat Hackers way, but by finding a market inefficiency and leveraging it to my advantage. It must be the day trader in me. No harm was done to any computers or systems in the making of this post.
With clear skies and rising temperatures around the country, the summer travel season is nearly upon us. And unless you've got money to burn or a first-born to offer, now's the time to book your travel plans. Here's how to get away without breaking the bank.
As part of Google's ongoing quest to know EVERYTHING about you so they can use that data to sell ads, they plan to launch a travel search service similar to that of Kayak, Expedia and Orbitz, where users can find the best deals on airfare.
Great news! Booking flights online is increasingly difficult and irritating. The reason? As the NYT explains, many airlines are locked in grappling matches with fare aggregators like Orbitz and Expedia over who gets paid how much. Either way, we lose.
Soon you'll be able to add "travel info" to the long list of things for which you depend on Google—they just bought ITA Software, a company that organizes airline flight information, for $700 million. In a separate but not unrelated note, everyone at Kayak and Expedia just canceled their summer vacation plans. […
What do you do when you're stranded on a desert island and you've gone through the last of your bottled water? You save yourself and the planet by recycling those bottles into a DIY kayak and outrigger.
In this week's mildly paranoid iPhone app roundup: Prices, slashed for the holidays! iPhones, recklessly tilted! Amazing classic games, handily ported! A decent camera app, sold for nothing! Cheap tickets, booked! Dictations, taken! Movies trivia, two ways! And much, much more...
I'm not quite sure where the name "Kayak" came from because it obviously does not resemble a small boat, but this speaker from Sonance is still a unique looking piece of equipment. The system was designed by the gurus at NACSound and they claim that the Kayak offers stereophonic sound from a single speaker (like…
If you're too lazy to paddle your own kayak, the solar-powered SPK-1 outrigger can harness the energy of the sun to get you on your way. Three big solar panels on this kayak-mounted attachment feed power to a silent-running electric trolling motor with 36 pounds of thrust. On the next page, take a look at a detailed…
If you've been avoiding kayaking all your life because the strenuous paddling seemed like too much work, Surfango is your dream come true. Tired of paddling away for a few measly miles per hour, Surfango strapped a four-stroke engine on the back of a kayak and the PowerKayak was born. It may only fit one person, but…
