Kayak is a small, relatively narrow, human-powered boat primarily designed to be manually propelled by means of a double blade paddle. The traditional kayak has a covered deck and one or more cockpits, each seating one paddler. Their cockpit is sometimes covered by a spraydeck ( or “skirt” ) that prevents the entry of water from waves or spray and makes is possible for suitably skilled kayakers, to roll the kayak, that is, to capsize and right it without it filling with water or ejecting the paddler. Man sitting with legs covered in boat that tapers to a point at each end holding long, pointed, wooden pole inuit seal hunter in a kayak, armed with a harpoon. Some modern boats vary considerably from a traditional design but still claim the title ‘kayak’, for instance in eliminating the cockpit by seating the paddler on top of the boat(“sit-on-top”kayak) having inflated air chambers surrounding the boat, replacing the single hull by twin hulls (“W”kayak), and replacing paddles with other human powered propulsion methods, such as foot-powered rotational propellers and ‘flippers’. Kayaks are also being sailed, as well as propelled by means od small electric motors, and even by outboard gas engines, when possible. The kayak was first make and used by the native Ainu, Aleut and Eskimo hunters in sub-Arctic regions of northeastern Asia, North America and Greenland
