Canoe Freestyle is the most exciting, most dynamic most unique thing you can do in a boat. It’s gymnastics in a kayak. Freestyle paddlers, in tiny specialist boats, will search out features on fast flowing rivers; White Water with a big standing wave or a retentive hydraulic with a tow back is what they are looking for.
When they find it they will test this feature and their skills to the limit. These features with names like ‘Bus Eater’ and ‘Big Kahuna’ can be intimidating but the sense of exhilaration that paddlers get when pulling off huge moves is unrivalled.
There is also a national event series of Freestyle competitions where paddlers can display their skills to the crowds with judges scoring moves to decide the winners.
