Meet the Paddler – KASK Roadshow

Words from KASK president, Shaun Maclaren on ‘Meet the People’ and New Zaland Water Safety Month.


Meet the Paddlers, is a Roadshow event run by KASK regional centres across New Zealand, with an aim to provide you with as much relevant information and equipment in order to help more people stay safe out on the open water.
This will be of interest to old and new paddlers alike whether you paddle conventional sea kayaks, canoes or something a little different.
We will provide up to date information about the what and need to knows for getting out on the water, as well as helpful links for finding these resources on your own. These events are designed by paddlers, for paddlers including both on land information as well as on the water demonstrations and training.
