What to wear & bring with you

It’s a water sport, so dress to get wet. We suggest wearing / bringing

  • A great attitude;
  • Wear quick-drying clothing such as shorts/leggings and a light-weight top  (i.e., no denim or heavy material);
  • Anti-slip closed-in shoes suitable for water sports (no thongs please)
  • Water (in a plastic bottle with lid tight enough to keep out the yummy Brisbane River water);
  • Lightweight waterproof jacket (optional, especially if it’s cool, wet or windy;
  • A cap/sunhat, and maybe sunglasses;
  • Sunscreen;
  • A towel and some dry clothes and shoes to change into afterwards;

We will provide

  • A warm welcome and support;
  • Coaching;
  • A paddle and life jacket to borrow.
  • Morning Tea in the park area closest the boat ramp afterwards for you to get to know our friendly team.
