Kayaking is a water based sport which involves a participant sitting low to the water in a kayak boat. Sitting forward with legs in front, the participant uses a double-bladed paddle to pull front to back on either sides of the boat in rotation. The majority of kayaks have a closed deck although there are a growing number of sit on kayaks in use. From simple touring on placid water to more challenging white-water descents and coastal challenges, the UK has something to suit all levels of abilities.
