A Special Report on Paddlesports

2015 Special Report on Paddlesports
Sponsored by The Coleman Company, the fifth annual 2015 Special Report on Paddlesports uses the latest participation data collected annually by The Outdoor Foundation to present detailed information on participation in kayaking, canoeing, rafting and stand up paddling by gender, age, ethnicity, income, education and geographic region - critical information needed by businesses, communities and non-profits working to connect Americans with the outdoors.

The report shows that paddlesports are on the rise, again setting a record for the number of participants. In 2014, 21.7 million Americans - 7.4 percent of the population - enjoyed paddling. This represents an increase of more than 3 million participants since the study began in 2010.
