2022 is the first year of urban water sports in China.

Water sports originally belonged to a small group of people.

But this year, on open waters in many Chinese cities,

Young people playing paddle boards and kayaks burst out.

On the Liangma River in Beijing,

One or two hundred people were playing paddle boards in the afternoon.

Whether it is Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Shanghai with rich water systems,

Or inland cities like Wuhan and Chengdu have become popular.

"You can't go to the beach, you can relax on the moat."

An entry-level inflatable paddle board can be purchased for one or two thousand yuan. With paddles, foot ropes, life jackets, air pumps and other accessories, the average price of a set is about 2,000-4,000 yuan. Roll it into the backpack, bring it to the shore to inflate it, and then you can play in the water. The average person can spend a day standing up on the board, which is a water sports with a low threshold.
