Skis are a well-supported discipline within the club, plenty of opportunity for competition, development and social paddlers. Competition allows for individual, doubles and mixed double skis.
West Beach SLSC has a proud history of ski paddlers, with Australian Medals coming from this discipline. West Beach provides paddlers of all abilities with assistance to help them get on the water and paddling. Beginners can use club skis to make a start, with many senior athletes purchasing their own gear. Ski Racks are available in the club Gear Shed for members to store their own equipment (subject to application to the club).
Training is held over winter at the Patawolonga in Glenelg on Tuesday and Thursday and when conditions are suitable at West Beach.
Please note: No member is permitted to compete in single ski events (including Ski Relays) until reaching the age of 15 years and in double ski events or competing in Iron Person events containing the ski legs until reaching the age of 16 years.
Note: U/15 age competitors must remain in the U/15 age category and shall not be permitted to compete on skis in any older age division in individual or team events even
