  • Cheaper entry to club events (get your membership fee back in just a couple of events)

  • SLMC is CRNZ affiliated, so you get a big discount on your Waimak Classic entry fee.

  • Weekly Saturday training paddles at Lake Hayes

  • Summer only Try, Learn, Explore courses for new paddlers

  • We have 8 Nelo surf ski boats and will be running member only surf ski "have a go" days for those curious about this epic sport to compliment your multisport paddling. Check out the video of the "rebel run" of the Deepsouth Downwind back in December to see how awesome downwinding on our Southern Lakes can be!
