Atlantic Canoe & Kayak Co.: Visit this site if you've never been in one of those tippy-looking sea kayaks before: You'll find descriptions of guided kayak tours through local wetlands and wildlife preserves, upcoming classes and night tours. You will have to paddle the kayak yourself, but just about everything else is provided.
The Alberta & Canadian Canoeing & Kayaking Links Page: Don't be detoured by this site's Canadian background; it's a one-stop index for the sport, both whitewater and sea kayaking, with links to safety topics, equipment manufacturers, kayakers' travelogues, river and conservation organizations, magazines, clubs and more.
Virginia Whitewater: The dim background colors may make reading this like searching for sequins in a forest at night, but it has most of what a mid-Atlantic whitewater kayaker needs to know trip stories from Virginia rivers, a mailing list, current weather forecasts and how-to help on topics such as selecting outfitters.
Seneca Rocks, West Virginia: Read up on this challenging climbing area in West Virginia, its history and controversies over its use. The site also covers safety concerns and has terrific orientation maps and directions, guidebook guidance and local weather and tourism information.
Rock 'n' Road: Browse this site for its extensive regional lists, sorted by park or specific rock features. You'll also find the usual weather updates, maps and guidebooks, plus a climber's bulletin board where people can look for climbing partners.

Washington Area Rollerskaters: The Washington Area Rollerskaters club, which organizes regular outings through Rock Creek Park and downtown D.C., lists a complete calendar of events and get-togethers on its page; it also has the scoop on finding local skating parks and pick-up rollerhockey games.
Skate City: The king of all inline skating link collections, Skate City has a searchable database of over 1,500 inline pages that includes everything from high-production PR sites for skate manufacturers like Rollerblade, Oxygen and Roces to areas constructed by high-schoolers with too much time on their hands.
