Our best advice is to dress for the weather!

  • Recommended:
    • Comfortable non-cotton base layer
    • Waterproof pants & jackets are highly recommended
    • secure wet footwear, if you don’t have booties or watershoes then wear something like running shoes that you don’t mind getting wet – no flip flops or open-toed sandals please.
    • A non-cotton toque if it’s chilly, or brimmed hat if it’s sunny
    • Sunscreen
    • Sunglasses with a strap.  If you wear prescription glasses we also recommend using a strap.
    • Insulating long sleeved non-cotton top and bottoms which will keep you warm even if they get wet
    • Water bottle (ideally with carabiner)
    • Towel & bathing suit for under a wetsuit (wetsuit provided for lessons with planned capsizing)
    • Warm change of clothes for after your paddle
    • Snacks or lunch for all-day lessons
