I agree with ACC. I had the totally "new school" playboat etc. mentality for a while until I actually tried a slalom race a few years back in which I got my but kicked and quickly gained respect. Its a great way play around while waiting for the hole to open up and it can really help with just paddling fundamentals which in turn help your playboating as well. or at least that was my experience. I think that puts the grand total now at $0.04

I must agree that slalom kayaking is great to watch and really hard to do. Much harder than throwing ends. The gates are put in very challenging places and you are racing against the clock. Playboating requires one feature that works with your boat design. .06

I love paddling gates and own two slalom boats. That is the only paddling I do on the Ark in the winter because who wants to get their head wet. That said gates are most definitely a pain in the ass. I maintain the course in Salida and it pretty much sucks huge.

I am so pissed off. I have Tivoed two nights in a row where kayak and canoeing were listed to be on and all I get is shot put, beach volleyball and rowing. I have not been able to watch a single whitewater event. What is going on? Is NBC screwing around and changing the TV schedule?

All I want now is to watch the Men's K-1 Finals that concluded live last night, and I can't find it listed anywhere. Can anyone help?
