The team at Global Paddler is currently hard at work on an exciting new range of paddle guides for South Australia. Three destinations have been published on the Global Paddler website, nineteen more have already been researched and are awaiting publication, and in March 2016, Scott Rawstorne from Global Paddler is heading back to the state that “rewards the curious at heart” to research eight more. The aim is to have a total of thirty online paddle guides for great South Australian paddling destinations by the end of the year.
