Canoe slalom began in Switzerland in 1932 & uses canoes or kayaks. The sport was modeled after ski slalom & originally performed on flat water. Today the sport is performed in white water rapids.

Canoe slalom boats are smaller, lighter & more agile than canoe sprint vessels. Designed for greater manoeuvrability through the rapids.

The first known competition of the sport was in 1933. Today they are governed by the International Canoe Federation located in Lausanne, which governs both canoe sprint and canoe slalom.
