Borrowing – Whitewater

As a member you can borrow kayak and equipment as long as it doesn’t coincide with courses or events organised by the club (weekly training and trips).

Nidelva run

Fill in your information in the log book (hanging on the inside of the door). All kayaks are numbered.

Other use than Nidelva

If you plan to borrow equipment to run other rivers or plan to use over several days, you have to apply to Elvesjef (Head of whitewater section). Register your request in the form below, well in advance.


Maintenance

After each use:

After each use:

  • Empty boats for water
  • Put equipment back to assorted spot (everything is sorted by size for easy finding)
  • Hang throwing lines to dry (rope out of bag)

Gyro-disinfection

If you plan to paddle other rivers than Nidelva you have to check whether they are infected by the salmon parasite Gyrodactylus salaris (Gyro). In such cases the equipment has to be disinfected after use. Contact Elvesjef for more information on how this is done. 

Damages and deficiency

If you discover new damages or deficiencies on the whitewater equipment, or the storeroom itself, please notify in the form below. Whitewater equipment is expected to go through tough conditions, damages are expected and will be covered by the club. Neglect is not.
