Common Injuries:

As the upper body is the only exposed part while doing the activity, injuries most often occur in the upper extremities.

Back and shoulder injuries such as bruising and muscle strain are fairly common.

Hand and arm injuries such as sprains and breaks can occur.

As Kayaking is often done as a white water activity in rocky, fast flowing water, there is a risk of cuts, contusions and abrasions.

Head injuries as a result of blunt trauma can also happen and may result in brain damage or death.

Tendonitis and chronic muscular pain can be the result of long term repetitive strain syndrome.


Whether you are a first time or experienced Kayaker, there are a number of essentials you should have before setting out on your trip.

There are a number of different paddles to suit the type of water you will be paddling on, such as touring, sea paddles, white water and surf.

There are safety essentials such as helmets are a must, as well as buoyancy aids for adults, children and even pets!

Pocket knives are also a good idea and come included with some throw bags which also contain rope.

Separate spraydecks are available to help waterproof your kayak.

Dry bags are good to have to keep all your essentials dry inside the kayak while you are paddling.

If you intend to fish while kayaking, there are also a number of custom accessories with which you can adapt your kayak, such as rod holders and bait casters which attach securely to the side of the kayak.
