Borrowing VWC Club Gear

The VWC has a range of whitewater kayaks, skirts, paddles and other gear to support club members to get out on the water and try different boats!

 

Once you are comfortable in the water, addicted to the sport, and have an idea of what gear works for you... we strongly encourage members to purchase their own equipment! Club gear is not intended to be borrowed on a permanent or long-term basis.  

Who Can Borrow Club Gear: 
  • Current VWC Club Members

  • Membership fees must be paid for the year  

How to borrow gear? 
  • RSVP to vancouverwhitewater@gmail.com to confirm attendance at a 'gear day' and indicate gear that you need. 

  • Attend a VWC Gear Day to sign-out gear.

  • Note, gear is available on a first come first served basis. Depending on the demand, we may have limited options, so we encourage you to come by early to have the best selection! 

How long can you borrow gear for? ​
  • Gear can be borrowed for all the Cap Sessions, but should be returned by the club Chilliwack Social.
