Good magazines?

What is a good kayak specific magazine? With whitewater, not sea kayaking.

The other two would be Kayak Session from Europe (pricey), and the LVM 'zine (by definition not really a true magazine). Kayak Magazine stepped it up last issue, with the Expedition Special. I wish they always had that type of focus...that issue was sick.

Kayak Magazine is awesome but it only comes out twice a year (unless it's recently changed). Not nearly enough for me.

The Paddler and Kayak staff appreciates the love. We do our best to promote this great sport we're all so passionate about and hope you enjoy the product. For now, Paddler magazine comes out six times a year and Kayak magazine twice. Check out our staff blog. We use it to show we're on the same "page" as our readers. Thanks for the support Colorado and Mountain Buzz!

No one mentioned American Whitewater. You join for $25 (has it gone up) and in addition to supporting our rivers and access you get a decent mag every other month. It does not usually have the picture quality of the commercial mags, but it is usually a good read.

Any one who isn't willing to shell out for this is either really broke or just a cheap ass.

My vote is for American Whitewater Journal. Its $35 now. But this is a hardworking conservation group. The articles are grass roots by that I mean that most articles are well written by non professional writers, some of whom Ive met on the river (and I paddle only 50 days per year). Many articles are related to creeking, river running, exploring, safety and zdrags; and little or no playboating articles that I can remember. Focus is on waters in this hemisphere where the average guy or gal can travel to; as opposed to rivers in Africa, europe, etc.

Ditto above. The AWWA Journal is great as it Kayak Magazine.

There are also a bunch of really good online magazines/blogs around. I like the non-commerical ones the best, like: bit commercial

I know there are a bunch of others, but I can't find my shortcut list.

LVM is the way to go...

and the AW journal has always been great!

The pics in kayak session are super sweet too, but the mag is a lil pricey.
