Covid 19 - Kayaks and stand up paddle board hire, guided tours and lessons with the OSKC

Owing to the current situation, our primary aim will be to protect both customers and staff therefore, to reduce customer contact, reduce equipment turnarounds, maintain social distance and to limit the number of people at our store and centre, we will no longer be offering 1hr kayak and stand up paddle board hire.  As from Monday 13th July an "up to 2hr" or additional time slots will only be available. Bookings must be paid for in full either over the phone, internet or face to face at our store. If weather conditions are unsuitable a full refund or reschedule will be offered. Customer changing rooms and toilet facilities will remain unavailable.

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that the group size meets current regulations. Please contact us if you are unsure. 

Kayaks will be ready for you on the beach. Paddles and buoyancy aids will be collected from a collection point at the centre, customers will be required to fit their own equipment under the instruction/supervision of a staff member. 

A safety briefing will be conducted at the waters edge, this will include launching instructions as staff will not be able to assist. 

Customers must have been Covid 19 symptom free for at least 7 days prior to booking date. 

It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure they are suitably dressed for conditions on that day. The OSKC reserve the right to refuse a hire and withhold payment. Please contact us if you are unsure.  

On return please report to a staff member and drop equipment off at the designated "Drop Zone" only leave the kayak/sup on the beach.

For guided tours, lessons etc all information will be emailed to you.
