Edinburgh Kayak Club has a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The emphasis is on recreational paddling and having fun, rather than competitive activities like racing and slalom. We have a growing membership, ranging from novice to advanced, so you are bound to find someone at the same level to paddle with. We are primarily a white water river paddling club and there are a great variety of activities to enjoy, covering day, weekend and evening trips. White water – kayak and canoe - trips to rivers are graded Beginner / Improver / Intermediate (Advanced trips are organised as peer paddles rather than official club trips), and guidance is given to help people choose the most appropriate level for them. We paddle many Scottish rivers e.g. Tweed, Teith, Tay, a North Esk, Tummel, Garry. Playboating / freestyle – sessions at the artificial course at Pinkston in Glasgow are sometimes booked by the club and trips to the “park & play” and freestyle sessions are regularly organised by members.
