It is pretty straight forward to paddle from Oceana. We are not a public beach so you cannot just rock up and paddle. As a controlled public slipway we are subject to a few basic rules. Here is what you have to do…..
If you are a beginner then this is not the place to paddle from. While the launch is super straight forward, there are no safe and easy landing spots along the coast line if you get into trouble. Fish Hoek or Hout Bay are great places to master the basics.
If you can stay in your ski and re mount easily then you will love paddling from Oceana.
Surfski paddlers in South Africa are subject to SAMSA regulations. We work closely with our club’s safety officer. His regulations are there to make sure we get to come home to our families after each paddle.
Here is what you need to do.
Simple enough. Join the club or pay R20 slip launching fees.
