Two New E-zines for Outdoor Enthusiasts

WEB 250 Thumb Cover Edition 1

Two of my friends from Down Under have launched a pair of new online magazines that will likely be of interest to outdoor enthusiasts everywhere. Both e-zines cater to the Southern Hemisphere, but fans of paddling and climbing will likely find them to be a great resource no matter where you live.

The first of these magazines is called Paddlemag and it is dedicated to all kinds of waterborne adventures. Whether you paddle a long sea kayak, a nimble whitewater boat, a canoe or a stand-up board, you’ll find something to love here. With great photos, fantastic profiles (they have one of Freya Hoffmeister here) and awesome trip reports the e-zine promises to be a source of inspiration to paddlers everywhere.

The other new online magazine is called Vertical Life, and as the name implies it focuses squarely on rock climbing. VL hopes to be a great source of news, reviews and insights on the climbing scene and like it’s sister publication, the e-zine will feature plenty of images and stories from the field.

The first two issues of both magazines are available for free and they are packed wit great content. I’ve been checking them out on my new iPad and with the Retina Display the photos look fantastic. Check them both out and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed. The Fall Issue (remember this is the Southern Hemisphere) of Vertical Life can be found by clicking here and for Paddlemag click here.
