I _might_ know what you mean. I've noticed fewer who are both skilled and active sea kayakers in my area. With more it's easy to get a group to do whatever the group is able to do. But as the number goes down and you have no buddies via clubs or random friends then you migrate to paid tours with guides.
Other sports I've done a lot such as mountain biking and skiing were such that I wished fewer were doing it as it was so crowded. But in my area for more challenging sea kayaking I'm wishing for more so that on any given day there are likely a few good paddlers to join.
I suspect this varies a lot by region.
