What is Kayaking? Kayaking is using a small boat (kayak) to move across water. Within the last century kayaking has become a very popular water sport. It is different from canoeing, by the sitting position of the paddler and the numbers of Blades on the paddle.
In kayaking the paddler faces forwards, legs in front, using a double-blade paddle. Canoes use a single blade paddle. Kayaks now come in many shapes and forms. There a double kayaks (2 person) and single kayaks (1 person). Some are sit inside and some are sit on top.
There are many different forms of kayaking disciplines, these include; Sprint, Marathon, Slalom, White water, Surf, Sea kayaking (expedition), Touring and Polo. These disciplines in recent times have also grown to include kayak fishing, extreme white water called Creeking
