We are an outdoor (on-water, in-water, dryland) activity club, joining is simple, please email Brian Raymer - braymer2@gmail.com and inquire (pricing and membership details on membership page).

Typical sessions are 60mins on-water* or dryland. (* + 10-15mins tack up-tack down for SUP if drysuits needed, unless otherwise stated).

Longer excursions, multisport and "training" sessions coming...

Think Concierge paddling.. we bring the gear, paddle, board, booties and drysuit (a suit that will keep you warm, and dry, IN and on the ocean) all included - you just arrive and go.

Not so interested in paddling... join and propose swimming, cycling, running, triathlon, dry land sessions. Do it as a group and we'll prepare for an event, together.  

Beginners to Advanced welcome. Some sessions will be skill level targeted, as the need arises.

Corporate/group members, spread the tokens around or book out sessions entirely for weekly team building activity, or request a dry land session close to work.

Still new to paddling, learn to paddle side by side with an instructor on 18ft long/5 foot wide BlueWhale board, try a tandem Red Dragon then move through the various BlackFish boards until you find a favourite.

Advanced Ocean paddlers, lets go beyond the shore and explore.. suggestions welcome. Downwind runs, current swells, standing waves, up to over head surf (after that you're on your own..), all available. 

Propose a trip. Plan one and we'll concierge it and join you. 

Specific board requests will be accommodated where applicable. Join just to have access to the full quiver of high quality drysuits, paddles and boards, flat water race boards, advanced open ocean boards, multi person boards, surf boards, etc. etc.

Parents, bring you kids, paddle together, start with an instructor and graduate to a family excursion, concierge'd. (Kids dry suits coming, march hopefully). 

Bored of board meetings, try a Board Meeting, email Sqwhitfield@gmail.com and we'll get out for a real meeting, out on the ocean. We paddle you out, you keep going, or sit and talk, or just sit, up to you.

Sessions will be offered weather dependant/dictated. Think of it as "playing in the weather" and if it is really blowing and there is no going out, we will do a drylands session, go for a walk, or just sit and enjoy a timelapse.. create some slack in the line..

Why centred around paddling?

Paddling, why paddling, it's freedom, in the space in between, drifting, dancing, taking space to breath, a time node, a pause. Time to regroup, to inhale, immersed in the great outdoors, unobstructed, beyond the noise of days and the drone inherit in the mundane, a low hum that permeates everything, and gathers steam as every hour passes folded into its maze, the trance when we are disengaged from the now, lost in narrative of what is to come and or sheltering ourselves from time past. To be out paddling is to be present to the now, engaged in skilled attention, in harmony with the environment, seeing each moment for what it is, a present, a gift, an opportunity to have empathy for your future self by simply being present in the now.

 

Its the textures on the ocean, the ever changing conditions, each path unique; think the freedom of cycling, without the cars, the adventure of mountain biking, where the ground moves, and forgives. It's the whole scene, the silhouettes of the shoreline cast on a far off backdrop. Swirling currents, layers upon layers, entangled swells, guiding the boat side to side, an interface, a matrix like topographic map, each prospective trail a first, and never to be repeated, with the wind as an near invisible agent, guiding as it pleases, from a nudge, to a unassailable force,

"we came in with the dust, and we leave with the wind",

out on the ocean, you are quietly reminded of this with every stroke, you are a guest, but you are always welcome, the ocean will meet you where you are at, and in doing so, she will reveal within you everything you need to know. From your darkest dark from which you must see through to the cracks, as Cohen says, "they let the light in", to a sense of pure joy, an awareness you are alive, defiantly dancing in the space in between.
