We are a community-run, not-for-profit kayak club with a difference – a share principle
The club nominated kayaks used are provided by other club members for use on an equitable community access share principle, and at no charge.
All new members are required to do paddle safety training course involving paddle technique, water safety and capsize/self rescue and assisted rescue skills before being able to use any kayak.
Participants need to join Paddle Australia (NSW) ($80 fee as a recreational adult member), for personal accident insurance and public liability while paddling, and Kayak Share Club ($80 fee). Both fees are for 12 months from the date of purchase.
After joining, paddlers need to supply their own life-jacket and paddle.
There are no costs for using a kayak, as they are not rented or hired.
Members can book a kayak using the Club’s Smartphone WhatsApp up to 3 days ahead.
Each kayak has a code and combination lock for use by members only.
Kayaks vary in type from easy sit-on tops, a double, a ski and touring kayaks for longer trips.
Only nine KSC club registered and labelled share-kayaks are permitted by North Sydney Council to be stored on the beach racks.
