Canoeing is an art of propelling yourself in the boat with a single-bladed paddle, under your own power. You would be kneeling or sit facing forward in the open or closed-decked canoe. Canoeing began to meet the simple needs of transportation across and along waterways in most parts of Kerala in the early ages. Canoeing was the primary mode of long-distance transportation at one time.
During earlier times, canoeing was used to as a popular mode of transportation transferring goods and people from one part of the backwater to the other. Today, it has found an immense popularity in tourism and adventure sports. A canoe can accommodate 2 to 10 people and is built in a way that it tapers at both ends. This ensures smoother sailing on rough waters and makes sure the canoe cuts through water without much difficulty. The canoes can be used in any kind of water, whether calm or rough.
