Whitewater kayaks

Whitewater kayaks are designed for paddling rivers where there is active, moving water and obstacles like rapids and waterfalls to be negotiated. There are many different types of whitewater kayaks from creekers to river runners and play boats. Rivers may have low grade rapids and waves or they can be extremely rocky with tight turns, high grade rapids and waterfalls. Kayak choice should be based on the type of whitewater that you like to paddle and that you have most access to.
