Extending the Trend: Is Kayaking Fun Enough to Watch?
We've already confirmed that kayaking is the sporting trend of the year--but is it fun enough to make it as a spectator sport?
The folks behind the new Canoe & Kayak World Series are betting that it is. The series of slalom races has been making (little) waves through Europe and Australia this summer and sails into the US this fall with the American Open, taking place October 3 and 4 at the Adventure Sports Center International in McHenry, Maryland.
Even if kayaking turns out to be a less-than-thrilling spectator sport, you can always hop in the water yourself. The new-ish Adventure Sports Center is a great place to try out everything from inflatable group kayaks to a controlled whitewater course.
