Blue Waters Kayaking Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking Kayak down rapids

Wikipedia, the free encyclopaedia

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. Kayaking is generally differentiated from canoeing by the fact that a kayak has a closed cockpit and a canoe has an open cockpit. However, there are many sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity. They also use a two bladed paddle. Another major difference is in the way the paddler sits in the boat. Kayakers sit in a seat on the bottom of the boat with their legs extended out in front of them. Canoeists will either sit on an elevated bench seat or kneel directly on the bottom of the boat.

White water kayaking involves taking a kayak down rapids. Sea kayaking sometimes also referred to as Ocean Kayaking involves taking kayaks out on to the ocean or other open water i.e a lake. Sea kayaking can involve short paddles with a return to the starting point or "put-in" or expeditions covering many miles and days. Kayaking of all kinds has continued to increase in general popularity through the 1990s and early 21st century.

How to paddle a kayak

Kayaking in How Double Blades Work

Advanced Techniques

Double bladed paddles for kayaks work similar to the double bladed paddles used in canoes. When three passengers are in a kayak, double bladed paddles make it easier to manoeuvre the boat. You can use fewer basic strokes easily with double bladed paddles in kayaking. You should set the double blades at a 90 degree angle. The reason is to feather the blade out of the water when it comes frontward. You can paddle harder, or use one blade on a single side of the kayak, to turn the boat.

How do I stop the kayak?

If you want to stop the kayak, you can use one side of the blade or the other to back paddle.

How do I move faster?

If you want to kayak to move faster, you can move one side of the blade frontward and use the back pedalling strokes on the other side.

Kayaking is a sports canoe, which each stroke is similar in canoeing and kayaking. If you are starting out, it is recommended that you practice with someone more experienced before attempting to kayak on your own. Kayaking is a dangerous sport, yet a fun sport, and that you practice before you attempt kayaking, you can reduce risks.

What types of strokes should I learn?

Draw strokes, recovery strokes, Duffek strokes, forward strokes, and so forth, are all basic strokes employed by amateur and experienced kayakers. The ideal is to learn the basic strokes first, practices the strokes, and move on to the advanced strokes.

Advanced strokes include the steer and stroke, Stern and Bow rudder, C and J Stroke, cross bow rudder, skull strokes, brace stroke, and so on.

What should I do when the kayak flips?

The first thing you want to do is to practice holding your breathe 30 seconds or longer. You should wear goggles, or mask when first learning to kayak. Unlike the canoes, in a kayak if you capsize (Flip), you will be emerged underwater upside down while strapped in the kayak. You will have feet, knee, and thigh straps securing you. Accordingly, you want to learn how to wiggle your way out of the straps to free yourself from the flip. Practice, practice, practice… no one can say this enough. Kayaking is dangerous, and you must practice before attempting to kayak on your own.

If you do flip, do not leave your kayak. The boat can offer you support. In the event that you do flip, try to use the kayak as support to guide you to the shores. An expert kayakers rule is to never, panic while leaning, or capsizing. Panic increases the risks, which could cause harm to you. While newspapers rarely report accidents or deaths from kayaking, it can happen.

If you are deep waters you will not have to worry about hitting your head on rock’s, however in shallow water you want to be careful. It is wise to wear head gear. In the water, you may want to secure any gear you have a board the kayak. In the event you flip, you want to swim to the bow and/or stern of the boat. At the same time, pull the kayak lower with the weight of your body, and energetically swim frontward a short distance.

We can discuss more about flipping later, since the main issue right now is to learn how to use double bladed paddles to prevent capsizing. In conclusion, you want to learn on again, the basic strokes in kayaking before attempting advanced strokes.

Tip: Check out your local area to find out if any kayaking services are available to you, which includes instructors who can teach you the basic strokes in kayaking.
