Paddler Information Centre (PIC)

On this website we have provided general information about sea kayaks, kayaking equipment and how to enjoy sea kayaking safely. Rather than reproducing specific information here we have provided links that our members recommend for specific information. We have added a section that provides links to the our favourite kayaking discussion groups.

The information has been split into related topics under the following three broad headings:

Browse through the pages for links to the information you are looking for. If you can’t find the information you’re looking for then hop into one of the discussion groups and ask the question. If you think that there is a source of useful information let us know by emailing [email protected] and we’ll check it out and probably add it to the site so we can all find it when we need it.
