If your looking for a unique gift to give to a paddling buddy or yourself, check out this sea kayak keychain cleverly named the Keyak.

Manufactured in Europe and made of PVC, they come in 5 colours, blue, green, orange, red and yellow. The great thing is that the MSRP is only $5.99 so it won’t break the bank.

Along with being a pretty nifty key chain, I think they would also make a great compact teaching aid for topics like navigation, surfing, currents or really time you would naturally look for a small stick to illustrate your lesson.

If you shoot film in the outdoors and looking to get better action shots, you need to check-out this Kickstarter project that is likely going to reach its $20,000 funding goal.

AirTracks is an inflatable all-terrain slider designed for DLSR cameras. It can be quickly set-up over (almost) any type of rough ground for super silky smooth sliding shots (say that 8 times).

The whole system only weighs a couple of pounds so it’s ultra-portable.

I want. Bad.
