Knack Kayaking for Everyone is aimed at both beginners and casual paddlers, covers both sea kayaking and whitewater kayaking. There are no good, public statistics on the crossover among practitioners of sea kayaking and whitewater kayaking. Modern recreational kayaks, however, are useful on still water and in relatively slow streams (Class 2 and maybe low-flow Class 3), they’re relatively inexpensive, and a lot of paddlers these days start in them and use them in a variety of water types. Thus there is a lot of crossover among beginners and casual paddlers.
