What is a kayak?
The kayak is a small, narrow vessel that is propelled by a two-bladed paddle. Throughout the beast, the term canoe is often used when referring to a kayak, but they are different boats. The traditional kayak has an opening in which one sits. The kayaker needs to carry a syringe that closes and prevents water from entering the boat. The kayak has a comfortable seat and back. Sea kayaks have a rudder that helps steer the boat. The rudder is controlled by steps at the feet.
The kayaks were originally developed by the North American Inuit, Yupik and Aleutian tribes. They use boats to hunt in inland lakes, rivers and coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, North Atlantic, Pacific Ocean and Bering Sea. These first kayaks were made from sewn skins of seals or other animals extending over a frame of wood or whalebone. Kayaks are considered to be at least 4,000 years old. The oldest existing kayaks are on display at the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich, believed to date from 1577.
