    Hello all,

    Brand new to kayaking and looking to join some of the courses SKABC offer and come along to some of the trips organised. Where is the best place you have found to hire kit from?

    I’m also really interested in packrafting so if anyone has one or knows of someone with a packraft I’d love to have a chat.

    Hope to meet you all soon.

    I would say that the big three (Ecomarine -Granville Isl & Jericho, Deep Cove and MEC) are the first on most people’s list, but there are countless others that are equally suitable.  Renting at MEC will require transportation to your final location though, one benefit of renting on the water.

    As for packrafting, you can rent locally a Caps Bikes, the BCMC had a intro packrafting course earlier this year, the Vancouver Whitewater Club may be of help, there are several facebook whitewater groups (Fraser Valley, Whistler, Squamish) and finally the 1st Canadian Packrafting Roundup starting on the 31st in Mt Robson Park.
