Direct Action Preparation

Be safe. Be prepared.

Joining us on the water? Awesome.

Conditions on the water can be extreme, and change rapidly. Be prepared by bringing along:

  • Warm top and bottom layers (to wear under wetsuit/drysuit)
  • Fleece/wool sweater/pullover
  • Warm socks & tennis shoes (or other shoes you can wear while kayaking)
  • Warm hat
  • Rain jacket (Important!)
  • Sunglasses
  • Sunscreen
  • Full change of warm dry clothes and shoes
  • Quick snacks (energy bars, etc.)
  • Water bottle
  • Medications (if applicable)

General rule: avoid wearing cotton. If you have your own paddle gear, bring what you have, including extra! We recommend having all your gear with you in a “go bag” ready to go on short notice. We have wetsuits for everyone, gloves for most, and some paddle shoes.

See ya on the water!
