Seattle, WA/USA – April 17, 2009 –Sea Kayaker magazine, founded in 1984, is celebrating 25 years as the foremost authority on the sport of sea kayaking. We will be marking this date with the publication of the June 2009 Sea Kayaker issue. This 25th Anniversary issue will be on sale May 1st. In the issue, Bob Burnett, one of the paddlers who helped pioneer the now popular internet kayak clubs, talks about the future of kayaking the internet super highway and how the world wide web has lent itself to establishing a sense of community amongst paddlers, often worldwide. Also in this issue, we profile Chuck Sutherland and his decades-long mission to keep kayakers safe paddling on cold water.
Sea Kayaker magazine has always been an independent publication and has long been acknowledged as the most respected periodical on the sport of sea kayaking in North America and abroad. Instructors and speakers regularly reference Sea Kayaker at symposiums and other educational forums around the world. In addition, our kayak reviews are the most thorough you’ll find and combine the insights of three highly experienced kayakers and a computer analysis of the hull’s stability and speed. Many of our readers find our review essential when considering the purchase of a new kayak, and kayak manufacturers frequently respond to our critiques with improvements in their products.
To compliment our print magazine Sea Kayaker also has a free monthly e-newsletter and a forum for sea kayakers from around the world to ask questions and share information. Visit www.seakayakermag.com
