Kayaking is a watersport which involves paddling using a double-bladed oar and a small boat known as a kayak. The boats come in a variety of sizes and types, depending on their intended use, but most kayaks feature an enclosed deck which covers the legs. The boat sits low in the water & usually only accommodates the single paddler, but tandem kayaks hold two people and some boats hold three people.
With the water sport season drawing near, sales of the recreation kayaks were up by 21 percent, or over by $42 million, and by 18 percent in terms of unit sales in the 12 months ending in the month of February 2016, according to Trends Market Research. Looking at the top items that make up this increase, the vast majority of those items are the fishing kayaks.
