WHAT IS KAYAKING?
Kayaking is a water sport which can be both fun and relaxing. Kayaks are canoe-like boats and there are different types including one person kayaks, two people kayaks, inflatable, closed decked kayaks and sit on top kayaks. Kayaking can be enjoyed on river rapids, lakes, waterfalls and even in the sea. The word kayaking means “hunter’s boat” and originally they were created by the Inuit, also known as Eskimos.
HEALTH BENEFITS OF KAYAKING
As a form of exercise, every sport has health benefits associated with them. Kayaking offers a great upper body workout as you paddle through the water. Kayaking is also great for your mental health as it can offer a relaxing and calming experience. Kayaking also is beneficial for your core as you need to use it to hold your balance and turn.
COMMON KAYAKING INJURIES
Unfortunately, sometimes the unexpected can happen. Some of the most common injuries associated with kayaking could include a shoulder sprain or strain from pushing the paddle through water, wrist injuries from repetitive movement of the wrist joint, collision injuries and dehydration and sunburn from overexposure of the sun.
