Bagi memahami maksud kayak yang sebenar, saya turunkan petikan dari Wkipedia agar anggota KRS lebih memahami tentang Kayak dan pengertiannya.
 Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water.  Kayaking is  generally differentiated from canoeing by the sitting  position of the  paddler and the number of blades on the paddle. A kayak is  defined by the  International Canoe Federation (the world sanctioning body) as a  boat where the  paddler faces forward, has their legs in front of them, and uses  a double  bladed paddle. Almost all kayaks have closed decks, however, there are  many  sit-on-top kayaks, and these boats are growing in popularity. A canoe is   defined as a boat where the paddler faces forward and kneels in the boat, using   a single bladed paddle. Canoes can be closed deck or open deck.
Whitewater  kayaking  involves taking a kayak down rapids. Sea kayaking sometimes also  referred to as  Ocean Kayaking involves taking  kayaks out  on to the ocean or other open water e.g., a  lake. Sea  kayaking can involve short paddles with a return to the starting point  or  "put-in" or expeditions covering many miles and days. Kayaking of all kinds  has  continued to increase in general popularity through the 1990s and early 21st   century.

Kayaking   at Great Falls, Virginia.Kayaks are classified by their intended use. There   are six primary classifications: slalom, whitewater, surf, touring/expedition,   light touring/day tripping and general recreation. From these primary   classifications stem many sub-classes. For example, a fishing kayak is simply a   general recreation kayak outfitted with features and accessories that make it  an  easier kayak from which to fish. Also within these classifications are many   levels of performance which further separate the individual models. In other   words, not all touring kayaks handle the same.There are two major   configurations of kayaks - "sit on tops" which as the name suggests involves   sitting on top of the kayak in an open area and "cockpit style" which involves   sitting with the legs and hips inside the kayak hull and a "spray skirt" that   creates a watertight barrier around the waist. Whether a kayak is a sit-on-top   or a cockpit style has nothing to do with which classification it falls under.   Both configurations are represented in each of the five primary  classifications.  While most kayaks are designed to be paddled by a single  person, other  configurations include tandem and even triple cockpit  boats.
Because of their  range and adaptability, Kayaking is popular amongst  divers, fishers, and  adventure enthusiasts.
