What is a kayak?
The kayak is a small, narrow craft that is powered by a two-blade paddle. In the UK, the term canoe is often used when it comes to kayaking. A traditional kayak has an open cockpit in which a person sits down. It is necessary that the kayak bears a sprayskirt that closes and prevents the water from entering the boat. The kayak has a comfortable seat and backrest. Sea kayaks have a rudder that helps to manage the boat. The turning is controlled by the legs.
The kayaks were originally developed by the North American tribes of Inuit, Jupik and Aleut. They use hunting boats in internal lakes, rivers and coastal waters of the Arctic Ocean, the North Atlantic and Pacific and the Bering Sea. These first kayaks are made from sewn fur skins of seals or other animals stretching over a frame of wood or whalebone. Kayaks are believed to be at least 4,000 years old. The oldest existing kayaks are exhibited at the State Museum of Ethnology in Munich, the oldest dating back to 1577.
