Two types

The two basic types of kayaks: open type, sit-on-top (top) and the traditional type (bottom). Apart from one being open and the other closed, it is typical that the open type is shorter and wider than the slender, arctic type, which often is faster and more suitable for long trips. The shapes and profiles are simplified and generalised.
