Playboating is perhaps the most modern type of kayaking
. It involves showing off a variety of playboating move
s, i.e. 'playing', rather than aiming to get from A to B.
Special short Playboats are designed to make this easier (allowing more flambouyant and sophisticated moves).
Playboating moves can often be executed on flat water, but the ideal locations for playboating are called playspots (normally waves or holes)
Surf Kayaking is a sub-category of playboating.
A playboating competition is called a Rodeo
