Paddling with SSK

SSK Paddles are initiated by individual club members, and are cooperative, non-guided trips.   Event initiators are not kayaking instructors or professional guides. Event initiators may offer basic equipment reminders for any particular paddle, will happily answer questions, and may turn away anyone clearly lacking appropriate safety gear or skill for the event. Contact the trip initiator before the paddle if you have any questions about a paddle.

All paddle event participants must fill out an emergency contact and liability waiver form at the beginning of each paddle event.

The Sacramento Sea Kayaking club uses a website to allow its members to post and manage paddles.
