Though paddling participation is rising, there is significant growth potential among minorities, which are underrepresented in the sport.
In 2014, paddling participants made 215.8 million annual outings — in kayaks, rafts, canoes and stand up paddle boards. Paddlers made an average of 7 outings each, with kayakers making the most outings and stand up paddlers making the least.
