From Nothing To The Perfect Kayak Kayaks are ancient water vessels that were first used by native Inuit Eskimos living in the Arctic Circle thousands of years ago. They were mostly used for hunting seals and fishing.
In fact, the name Kayak loosely translates to “hunter’s boat” in Inuit language. Kayaks were very practical for hunting sea prey due to their stealthy movement in water, easy maneuverability and lowlying nature. The primitive kayaks of the time were constructed by stretching animal skins over wooden frames or whale bones. Modern kayaks are constructed with more durable yet lightweight material including fiberglass, polythene composites and wood strips. Kayak racing was made an Olympic event in 1936 and there are several surfing and whitewater kayaking tournaments hosted all over the world. Another interesting fact about kayaks is they are frequently used during wars to discretely deploy troops to launch surprise attacks and for reconnaissance missions.
Because of their small and uncomplicated design, kayaks require very little skill to build. All you need are the right building materials and an accurate plan. Building a kayak will also give you sufficient experience that can enable you to construct more complex vessels like boats and canoes.
