To clarify, for people
who have no idea why there is needed a certified for kayak, we have
placed a comparative statement.
You also would not drive in a car
without a steering wheel and no brakes?!
For driving a car, motorcycle
and moped, you need a driving license. For the larger pleasure ship
you need a certificate but what do you need for a kayak?
The danger of incompetent and hidden risks!
To paddle straight with a kayak or canoe is already an art in itself.
Often you see beginners paddling uncontrolled on the water. In fact
they are floating around out of control. In still standing water it
doesnít have to be a problem, although a kayak is unstable and
always can flip.
Once people going into the current, the kayak will sail itself. You
will see the shore passing by and you need to have some techniques
to control or stop the kayak. If you donít control this techniques,
you paddle rudderless, without brakes and you have an actual change
that any danger canít be avoid.
