Have you seen George and Isabel out at the canal doing some awesome tricks with their playboats – spinning, cartwheels, flips and somersaults in a kayak? The competitive side of playboating is called freestyle kayaking. Next weekend there’s the oldest and biggest freestyle kayaking festival in the world on Hurley Weir. The Hurley 30 Paddlesport Festival takes place on 16th and 17th March 2019. There are workshops, live coaching, trade stands, and lectures – plenty to get involved in.
