The kayaks are specifically designed for polo and are faster and lighter than typical kayaks which give them fantastic maneuverability. The blades of a polo paddle have thick rounded edges to prevent injury. Paddles are also very lightweight and designed with both pulling power and ball control in mind. Nose and tail boat bumpers, body protection, helmets and face-guards are all compulsory.
In [[International Canoe Federation]] nomenclature used in some European countries, chiefly the [[United Kingdom]], the term canoe can refer to [[kayak]]s,<ref name="">{{cite web | url= | title=Buying a canoe or kayak | | accessdate=8 September 2014}}</ref>{{better source|date=December 2017}} while [[canoes]] are then called ''[[Canadian canoe]]s'' or ''Open boatscanoes''. The boats in this game are paddled with a double-endedbladed paddle and may be called "kayaks".
