There are a number of aspects to paddling safely, including:

  • What gear to bring and wear.
  • What skills are appropriate for the location.
  • What conditions you are likely to find at the location.
  • Proper training

Please check out our Documentation, Learning Resources, Paddling Resources, and Affiliated Retailers pages for information on these and other topics.

For members who would like training in wet exits and assisted self-rescues contact the OOPS Safety Director at 

Members who request training or who are already comfortable with wet exits and assisted self- rescues may be certified during pool sessions, during scheduled trips, or by arrangement. For open-water sessions, be prepared for cold-water immersion.
