Club Equipment

The club has an extensive fleet of canoes, kayaks and stand up paddleboards for club members to hire. As a new paddler, you can hire a kayak to get you started and help you decide what type of paddling appeals most before investing in your own kit.

It’s really easy to hire gear. Just contact the Club Equipment Officer (members only) and make arrangements to meet up at the club equipment store. Bring your own roof-rack and straps. Pay us a hire fee, based on the number of days you use the gear. Other gear like paddles, spray decks, buoyancy aids and helmets are included in your hire fee.
