White water kayaking is the ultimate form of river running. The sport today implements state of the art technology for boat and equipment development. The progress in technology made in the last decade unlocked the possibility to run demanding river sections with improved safety. Kayaking today became a lot of fun, enthusiasm for adventure and the experience of nature. As a trend and extreme sport it is attractive and popular especially among younger people.
Especially when it comes to running whitewater. Having a qualified instructor around you on your first attempts is awesome. It helps to lay down firm foundation for smooth future progression in your own development by ensuring that the basics are learnt well and bad habits are not developed by trying to figure out the sport on your own.
On the river you are a discoverer, your own master in bondage with nature and the elements. Unlike in our over regulated society on the river you are free to navigate, find and choose your own way and your own tactic. Your curiosity and the current sweep you along. There is no immediate stop in the middle of the ”Flow”. It is a challenge and heading for new frontiers demands a lot of courage and dedication.
