Whitewater kayaking- For the man who has nothing left to loose. Most great whitewater kayakers have next to nothing and have spent at least a summer living out of their car. White water kayaking is dominated by ADHD young adults who want nothing more than to be racing down a mountain through constantly changing rapids while strapped into a plastic tub.
Squirt boating- Sometimes riding on top of terrifying class V rapids isn't enough. Squirt boaters sink their kayaks and ride under the water through crazy rapids. They come up every once in a while to catch their breathe but that's pretty much it. Soon squirt boaters will be extinct due to natual selection. *Maybe the only group of people in the world that smoke more weed than snowboarders per capita*
Playboating- Standing waves form in many rivers. Playboaters find those waves and surf them all day long. As boats become better and kayakers become better, new tricks are created all the time. Playboaters enjoy cartwheels, loops and blunts (The trick and the other one).
Sea Kayaking- The sport for the man who is content with his life. Can be very tame (Gulf of Mexico) or as tricky as an easy whitewater river (Washington). Finally, a boat that can carry a full keg (or 5).
Recreational kayaking- includes fishing, having fun at the beach, kayaking easy rivers or just having fun at the lake. The gateway drug to the other types of kayaking.
Hurricanes mean two things in Houston: No school and finally enough water to go kayaking through backyards, golf courses and off that ledge you have always imagined as a waterfall.
