Wet Exit Policy:
- We require that all participants on Level 2 and above paddles wear a spray skirt (loosely fitting spray skirts or spray decks attached in such a way that they release when the paddler capsizes do not qualify), are certified in wet exits, and able to assist in their own rescue. Level 1 paddles can be done without wet exit certification, but only if the paddler does NOT wear a spray skirt. To that end, the following document (PDF, Word) includes:
- What participants need to be able to do to become wet-exit certified
- A form for retailers to fill out when a member completes Wet Exit Certification at their store
- The criteria and Expectations of Wet Exit Certifiers
Contact Safety to find someone to wet-exit certify you, or if your wet exit information is not correct.
