Kiwi Association of Sea Kayakers (KASK) ~ Official New Zealand Website
KASK was established in 1992 as a national association for sea kayaking in New Zealand. An incorporated society, it is run by a national committee which is elected annually.
KASK is supported by 16 regional sea kayak networks and clubs which organise trips and provide services at a local level. KASK maintains close liaison with allied organisations such as Water Safety NZ (WSNZ), Maritime New Zealand and New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association (NZOIA).
