White Water Kayaking

River Angels - a group of white water kayaking women who have set up a website to foster the growth and development of females in the sport of white water paddling.  They are Tanya Shuman, Ruth Gordon, Tanya Faux, Nikki Kelly and Mariann Saether and the website is well worth a look at as it includes tips, gossip, photos, videos and articles.

Girls At Play - a website and company set up by Anna Levesque that focuses on white water paddling.  Lots of interesting articles, Anna's blog, tips and lots of other information.

Liquidlogic Ladies Lounge - a blog featuring some pretty hard core paddling by some amazing ladies.

CReW Girls - a blog featuring three lovely ladies (or rather two lovely ladies and one young girl) who paddle out of Ontario, Canada.  Enjoy!

The adventure we call life - this is my own blog that I'm shamelessly promoting on my own website.  If you look in the archives you'll find the account of the all-girl paddling trip I went on to the White Nile in Uganda in 2006.

There is also an active Wavesport Forum with lots of female members.
