Suncoast Seniors Recreational Kayaking Club Inc.
SSRKC is a seniors recreational kayaking club based on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.
Our aim is to promote social kayaking activities.
Our main activity is recreational touring paddling and we do not take part in competitive events. We paddle mostly on lakes, rivers, flat water passages, and dams. The Club has developed a strong social side which can include picnic lunches and camping trips.
Our members paddle at a variety of locations within a one hour drive of Maroochydore. There is a club camp each quarter at paddling locations like Baffle Creek, Burrum Heads, Brunswick Heads, Yamba and Tin Can Bay.
Club membership is open to anyone aged over 50 years who is interested in recreational paddling. Applicants must have their own kayak and equipment.
A reminder that all paddles will commence at 8:30 am during the Winter months of June, July, and August.
Evans Head Camp 2013
Submitted by Sue Alcock
As we drove south along the Pacific Hwy, through torrential rain, 75km per hour winds, flooded roads and backwash from the semi-trailers, all we could think of “what on earth are we doing driving through this severe storm to go to a kayak camp” at Evans Head, NSW. But fourteen keen kayakers braved the elements and made it to our destination. We unpacked in the pouring rain, and listened to the roar of the surf in the background. Needless to say we all looked forward to a drink at happy hour at the ‘surf shack’ where we discussed what waterways were still possible to go kayaking along over the next few days. Our paddles were limited to several different paddles on the Evans River, another one in the Bundjalung National Park at Jerusalem Creek and one at North Creek, Ballina.
