What is BSI PadlingBSI Padling is a sea and whitewater kayak club for both students and non-students. The members are very active throughout the year, and the club arrange activities and courses outdoors from April to November and sometimes pool sessions in winter time. Sea trips take place from the clubhouse in Breiviken on Tuesdays and Thursdays, technique sessions are held on Wednesdays and there are some weekend trips out of the city. The whitewater paddlers head inland to find some of the best whitewater in Europe and do technique sessions in the sea at the clubhouse.
Members can use club kayaks for free at club activities. When you are a club member you can borrow kayak equipment (kayak, wet suit, paddle, PFD (personal flotation device), shoes and paddle jacket) at club arrangements and for personal use for short durations (see https://bsipadling.no/utlan-av-klubbutstyr/). You do not have to buy any equipment unless you want to. Dry suit may be required for some of the earlier activities in the year due to cold water temperature (dry suits are personal equipment and are not supplied by the club). It is requried that members have the basic kayak paddling courses ("Våttkort"), these courses are also offered by the club.
