    Hey guys!

    In the next couple months I'll be moving to Abbotsford.

    I was wondering if anyone can suggest any clubs or groups to get acquainted with for paddling fun or even places that would be convenient to get to from Abbotsford to paddle!

    Thanks!

    Welcome to the coast.

    There are two clubs in the lower mainland.

    Pacific International Kayak Association (PIKA). I don't have any first hand knowledge but I know some of their members so I would expect it to be first rate. It is based in Langley I think. Probably more convenient for you.

    Based in Vancouver is Sea Kayak Association of BC (SKABC) It is a well established club that arranges trips and courses for members.

    They both have websites.
