What are the various types of canoeing?

Canoeing is both recreational and competitive. Recreational disciplines include touring and sea kayaking, whilst competitive canoeing includes canoe polo, canoe sailing, freestyle, marathon, slalom, sprint racing, surf and wild water racing. However, somewhat confusingly most canoeing disciplines, including canoe polo, actually use closed cockpit boats, or kayaks. Whilst these are technically referred to as ‘kayaking’, canoeing is the general term used for all of the disciplines.
