But people also designed a diamond canoe, 1972, appeared in the glass steel boat. And the emergence of the honeycomb structure of the carbon fiber paper boat, and the United States shipbuilers in order to improve the speed, in the kayak shell, manufacturing artificial shark skin, the surface of a layer of parallel "ravolt" groove, these fine And the dense groove, can make the level of steady flow, and will not form a vortex. But this design has not been adopted by the international division. Nevertheless, its spirit is still commendable, because the kayak movement must coordinate the relationship between the technical, athletic equipment and the role of water.
