....on theory....

....well, monkeyboy....i should say that sometimes i fail to see what all the hype is about... KAYAK-ING...you always have to drive.....it's cold(meow)....you always have to find somebody to go with....it's too expensive....you have to learn to roll in moving water....it's too scary...you always need to do a shuttle....mtn. biking is more FUN... takes up too much time and anyways, kayaking isn't that much fun.....i guess i do it for the CHICKS!!!!......go eat a banana mb#2

The theory behind kayaking originates back to the mid 1800's. Lord EddyIII thought that by applying the gravitational metaphysical precambrian concept of hydrology, one could coagulate a craft onto moving water.

No theory, Just the perfect day, where you know your alive, and you enjoy the scenery and the feeling of the water and the mountains, and the adreneline of the river run... and every time your out, you never want to go home at the end of the day! That is why I love it. Like dancin', it hits your soul. Its who you are. Make sense?

Kayaking as a theory? well last time i checked kayaking wasnt really like realitivity. So i dont think its anything like a theory, more like a state of being or mind. Its just being on the water because you love it and not having to explain that to anyone. A simple ephoria of emothtions and such. You should really try it some times just stop thinking about kayaking and just kayak. EAT SLEEP and DREAM it just like you would any other sport.

It's a ying and yang thing.

Thoreau said "Who hears the rippling of rivers will not utterly despair of anything". But when the river roars instead of rippling you get to feel lots and lots of despair.

This despair then no despair thing helps balance out your psyche. It fills you up so you don't go take your aggressions out on society. It keeps you content so you don't do sociopathic things like say run for public office.

That help?

despair

I beg to differ on the despair thing-- I feel no despair at all when kayaking. That's the beauty of it. Fear, yes, despair, no.

I'm with cayo and laurey- you 2 described it well.. kayaking absorbs you into the moment- you can't think about anything else when you are getting ready to take the plunge down the next drop.

"No theory, Just the perfect day, where you know your alive, and you enjoy the scenery and the feeling of the water and the mountains, and the adreneline of the river run... and every time your out, you never want to go home at the end of the day! That is why I love it. Like dancin', it hits your soul. Its who you are." ---I couldn't have said it better myself, Laurey :)

Unending as is all life, alive, dark, wise and full of exotic knowledge and immortal time, the rivers flow on and on, as do we all, to the sea.

I think it's all about bouyancy force. (Bouyancy force equals the density of water times the volume displaced.) Without bouyancy, kayaking would just be an extended mystery move...

Kayaking is no longer a theory, but a demonstrable FACT that is commonly accepted in mainstream scientific circles today, no matter what the flat-earthers say... :roll:

...although some drops, like say Miller Falls on the Crystal, do remain in the hypothesis stage to this date. :shock:
