World Kayak was founded to aid in the development of whitewater kayaking across the globe. The philosophy is simple:
“We believe that a healthy and active whitewater community is something that attracts new paddlers to our exciting, fun and safe sport. World Kayak aims at helping all communities keep the activity and stoke going year round to gain the attention of new paddlers world-wide.”
To do this, World Kayak offers a growing number of community support programs; programs that are all lead by regional ambassadors. Our ambassadors are volunteers who donate their time to running events, festivals, pub nights, movie premieres, clubs and clinics. Our programs are supported equally by a growing number of sponsors who help us feed the flames of enthusiasm throughout the year.
