The club will provide all the kit you need, such as wetsuits, bouyancy aid, cags, boats, paddles, decks etc. All you really need are clothes and thermals you dont mind getting wet to keep yourself warm when outside on rivers.
If you have your own kit feel free to bring it along - If you have any other kit related questions just message the Facebook page and we will happily answer any queries
