White Water Kayaking is a type of Extreme Sport which involves paddling of a kayak on raging waters or whitewater river. The origin of the sport goes way back in the Stone Age when indigenous peoples in different regions of the world use the raft, canoe, or kayak to move across rough waters.

Did you know who invented this extreme sport?  It was Alfred Heurich – an architectural student from Leipzig, Germany who invented the folding kayak known as the “Faltboot” in 1905. Heurich has a record of having paddled more than 100,000 km on rivers and lakes.

Two years later (1907), Alfred Klepper buoght the patent to the folding kayak’s design, and made some improvements in the system, making the kayak more sturdy and suited to be used in wild rivers and canyons.

In 1980, Prijon, a manufacturing company in Rosenheim made use of the polyethylene to produce WW boats which are not only more durable, but also maintenance and repair free.
