Freestyle Kayaking is a dynamic canoeing discipline best described as gymnastics on water.
Athletes in tiny specialist boats, search out features on fast flowing rivers to perform a range of acrobatic tricks and manoeuvres usually on the face of a wave or using a retentive hydraulic.
Freestyle competitions are held at a specific feature and each competitor is given a timed run, in which they have to perform as many moves as possible. Scores are awarded for their technical difficulty and the variety of moves the competitor completes. Both women and men compete in Kayak single (K1) and Canoe single (C1) events.
