Isle of Man Kayaking - New.

At last the latest version of is up. It's a work in progress with still quite allot of content to add in. The new layout was necessary to allow this to happen, as well as a need to rewrite it in php.
Of note, as well as the kayaking outlet directory, to which commercial operaters can add their outlet details and a link, there is a new paddling gear directory. There are over 160 currently available kayaking products from 7 major manufacturers listed. The directory includes a usual price, details, a photograph and the opportunity to read or write an independent review of any listed piece of gear. The idea is to have it all in one place and most importantly, any reviews will be left by paddlers and not producers. There is also an accompanying "buyers guide" written by Jessica Egelnick for the 5 product categories listed.
Of interest to Manx readers or visitors to the Isle of Man, there is a new surf kayaking guide by Steve Watt listing the best surf spots on the Isle of Man, and tidal race information and guide by John Scott.
There is also a new "best of the blogs" page with my choice of the best kayaking blogs which will be regularly updated, and a live feed generated kayaking news feature listing the latest paddling stories from around the World.
