Many people have noticed that we haven't released our Autumn issue; unfortunately due to several unexpected issues we have made the difficult decision to postpone Issue#19 of Cumec until Spring 2013.

While we were working on pulling together the Autumn Issue our plans did not progress as hoped and with the high standards that we want to maintain with the magazine the decision to postpone became easier as time progressed. We're taking this opportunity to work on several new ideas and finally taking the time to refresh our website to continue informing, inspiring and entertaining the paddlers of Australasia and further afield.

We are also aiming to announce details of the 2013 Cumec Magazine Paddle Sports Awards alongside our new website in late June.

To all our valued subscribers and avid readers we're sorry that you'll have to wait longer for the next installment, but we want to ensure that you continue to receive the best kayak magazine that we can produce. Any enquiries about subscriptions can be directed to This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks for your understanding.

Antz Longman, Editor & Publisher of Cumec Magazine.
