How to Kayak – Kayaks are a great way to take advantage of our nation’s beautiful lakes, rivers and other waterways. Whether kayaking for pleasure, exercise or weekend recreation, kayaks allow fitness enthusiasts of all ages to get involved in boating and other water sports.
The kayak is designed for stability, ease of operation, and with some of the more sleek and lightweight designs, speed. Unlike canoes which can be unstable when operated by inexperienced paddlers, kayaks are generally stable and easy to paddle, even for beginning kayakers.
