What to bring

  • Paddle can be rented but we recomend to take your own. Tip, if you have a heat glued paddle they are easy to warm and split, I use warm water from the teakettle to glue it back. We allways have heating glue with us if needed. Otherwise take a paddle bag and pack the padle well in case you cant have it on the flight.
  • Calfleash.
  • PFD (Flytväst)  with hydration bag
  • Phone
  • Waterproof Phone Case
  • Paddleclothing, normaly lycra is enough, maybe a pair of thin neopants. Take some changes so you allways can start dry.
  • Sunprotection
  • GPS watch
  • Download RSA Safe Trax to you phone allready now. Its free!
  • By a telephone card direct at the airport. They even help you to install it. You need it to use internet. Wifi its not so common.
