All members need to provide their own lifejacket and paddle.
It’s a Maritime legal requirement that lifejackets or approved personal floatation devices (PFDs) are to be worn by kayakers at all times when more than 100 metres from the shore. The lifejacket needs to be of the correct size for the wearer and Level 50S or greater and suitable for kayaking.
Fluro-coloured lifejackets as Vaikobi brand are recommended. These are sold by Prokayaks at Narrabeen, on the lakeside and are online and provide KSC with 10% discount.
Kayak paddle blades are feathered and asymmetrical to reduce wrist twisting. Paddles can come in 2 pieces for easy transport and storage. Paddles can be bought cheaply online and at places as Anaconda or Decathlon.
