The Splinter Group is an informal club group interested in Greenland kayak skills. Anyone can join, the only thing you need is an interest in this style of kayaking. You don’t even need a stick, though they certainly make the rolls easier.
We meet on an occasional basis when we can get organised enough, usually a half-day. We don't go very far but we get very wet.
Following the visit and training by Ginni Callahan in 2010 and again with Axel Schoevers in 2011, a few club members began to meet to pursue their interests in Greenland-style kayaking. This included pool rolling through winter 2011.
The visit of Cheri Perry and Turner Wilson (of Kayakways) in April 2012 has provided even more inspiration in rolling and kayaking using skinny sticks.
We meet on an ad hoc basis to support and encourage each other. The splinter group welcomes anyone who is keen or just curious. There are no instructors or leaders, everyone is simply trying to pass on knowledge and have fun.
If you’re at all interested in the skinny sticks, or want to find out if you'd enjoy them, why not try the splinter group. All skill levels welcome, this is about learning stuff.
Please note unless a trip is listed in the club's trip register, it's not an official club activity.
