canoe taiwan kayak adventure club boat raft inflatable An inflatable kayak, in the river, is exciting, stable and easy to learn. Canoe taiwan kayak adventure club boat raft inflatable kayak. You can use an IK in river, sea or lake. A rk-thing needs more skill and time to learn but after learning you have the most control and speed. You should take a class to learn the basics. You can use a rk-thing in the river, sea, or lake. A sea thing is great here. You need to practice about 15 minutes in flat calm water. If you want to sk-thing in rough or windy seas, you must learn about tides, currents, winds, and waves. sea k-thinging in a lake, such as Sun Moon Lake, is very easy. You can use a sea k-thing in the sea or lake, but not fast moving and rocky rivers. A c-thing is made to use in lakes, calm rivers or sea bays. It is good for bird watching, fishing, photography, camping and family trips. A c-thing is not good in windy or rough seas. We have activities year round. It never really gets too cold here. Of course things happen where an activity gets canceled. Such as when weather condition are too bad. Some things a members gets married. Then we have to go to the wedding. All the male members, including the groom, hate going to weddings on a Saturday or Sunday. You can see that marriage does not go with our sport. The sea marriages work but river marriages do not. Unless the bride is into the river scene also. When I first visited here, there we no k-things. Except an old 1950 style i saw. Rumors were that; 1. An American soldier left it when he returned to America. (After the ROC and America stopped official relations). 2. An American visiting professor brought it and left it here when he returned to America. Which ever is the real case, some people here grabbed it and copied a few. Boy, it sure was a bad design. It was like being in a stage coach from the wild wild west. The out fit had no foot pegs or bulk head. The out fit had no knee brace. And today we are all used to foot pegs or a bulk head. And today we are all used to knee braces too! The out fit had no back rest strap. It is not imaginable to me to go with out a back rest strap. I honestly can see why so many older people have back problems! You would too if you did not use a back rest strap. How could you roll the bugger with no knee support? How could you even go down the river more than 100 meters in those conditions? If you did hit a rock head on, you would slide down into the k-thing because there was no foot pegs or bulk head. But that would not be a problem because the k-thing would crack open if you hit a rock. See, the k-thing was made of fiber glass back in the 1950 and 1960s. Unfortunate, there were no spray decks that I saw here either. The rivers in Asia not very good compared to here. Japan has many k-thingers but the rivers there are not very high on the level of classification. Class 1 is a calm lake. Class 2 is a moving river water with a few ripples and the beginning of some white water. Class 3 is mixed moving water and ripples with a few places where there is obvious white water churning and even some holes. Class 4 is much faster moving water. White water every where. Usually obstacles in the river, like rocks. Remember rocks are you friends. I always thought of rocks in the river are just like a woman. Some times fun and friendly but most of the time they are dangerous and hurt you!
