I have always enjoyed canoing and white-water rafting, but of late I have become a kayaking enthusiast.  Early kayaks were covered in sealskin and used primarily for hunting.  Kayaking became popular as a sport in the 1800's, and became an Olympic event in 1936.  For more inforomation click here and click here.  What did you learn today?
