Kayaking is one of the most popular watersports in the world! It is practiced on lakes, rivers, oceans and in surf zones. Basically anywhere you see water you will find a person braving the environment on a kayak! It is a sport that uses a double-bladed oar to navigate water in a small dirigible boat that usually covers the legs and feet. This boat is called a kayak. Kayaks come in all different kinds of shapes and sizes. They usually permit one to three riders and the shape is determined by the type of water to be navigated or the activity to be pursued.
Given the nature of the elements to be braved, kayaking has a wide range of experience levels. However don’t be intimidated, while you need a lot of experience to kayak through a Class 5 rapid, you don’t need much for a calm day on the lake.
Whether you are looking for a relaxing day enjoying sights from a novel angle, or looking for an exhilarating day of intense exercise, the kayak is the watersport for you!
