Paddlemag Website Gets A New Look, Comes To iOS And Android


One of my favorite online resources for news and information on kayaking, Paddlemag, has released its third issue, bringing a host of stellar articles and stunning images to readers. The e-mag always has excellent content available in a beautiful – not to mention free – .pdf file format that brings together all the slickness of a traditional magazine with the convenience and portability of a digital one. This time out, Paddlemag profiles Jason Beachcroft, who is attempting to circumnavigate Australia in a Kayak. Unlike Freya Hoffmeister’s circumnav from a few years back however, Jason intends to include Tasmania in his expedition. The mag also takes a look at Ryan Fulton’s Stand-Up Paddleboard journey along Australia’s Gold Coas to Melbourne, traveling a distance of 2087 km (1296 miles) in the process.

A new issues isn’t the only thing that the editors at Paddlemag have brought to the table. They’ve also launched a revamped website that is clean, easy to navigate and provides plenty of news and information from all aspects of paddling sports. It also provides access to the previous issues of the magazine, which are available to download as well.

Perhaps more exciting is that Paddlemag is now available in the Apple’s App Store and Amazon’s Kindle Store. The apps are free to download, but the individual issues are AUS $4.50 (US $4.28), which is actually a solid deal for a fully interactive digital magazine of this quality.

If you haven’t checked out Paddlemag just yet, drop by the website and download an issue. I think you’ll find that it is a fantastic magazine that will change your perceptions of what is being done in the digital arena.
