Kayaking is a famous extreme water sport. That cannot be played without proper training or guidance.Though dangerous it is the most amazing way to explore thousands of kilometers of rush rivers. The best joys that comes with kayaking is a relaxing day on the water, a warm breeze rolling by and some beautiful sceneries. The name basically comes from kayak (kayak originates from the Greenlandic word qajaq) which is a one person specially designed boat where a person sits inside the kayak. Some types of kayaking are sea kayaking, touring kayaking, whitewater kayaking, recreational kayaking, and sit on top kayaking.
This old traditional style is being taken over by the double sit-on-top kayaks. Instead of fully covered “cockpit”, sit on tops kayaks provide an open top for easier exit and entry.
