Our friendly committee and members, mixed with the relaxed atmosphere at sessions and socials, means you’ll be making good friends with everybody in no time!
We offer both LOPC sessions to learn the basics, practice techniques and confidence on the water with excellent tuition from qualified coaches. As well as trips to local white water centres and rivers to develop skills on white water and learn how to paddle on moving water and on a river.
We hope to hold friendly competions with DMU throughout the year, to motivate members to improve their paddling skills in friendly environment. We will also be attending the national student rodeo (NSR) in March, which is a nation wide weekend of competions for paddlers of all abilites.
LUKS hosts a varied range of socials, including; casual meets in the pub, BBQs, film nights, meals and full out bar crawls. We listen to what our members enjoy doing and then strive to do more of that.
