SSTIKS Registration has Closed!

If you have questions regarding your current registration, are an invited mentor or guest who has not yet registered, or just have general questions about SSTIKS Registration, please contact John Dunlap at johnbishopdunlap@gmail.com.
SSTIKS is a family friendly weekend event featuring some of the best instructors and competitors in Greenland-style kayaking.
The children’s track is an important part of the weekend and it’s also what sets us apart from the usual kayak events. Beginners to advanced paddlers and rollers find new challenges and build new skills each year.

For a history of how SSTIKS started with the first gathering in 2002, read Tim Mattson’s SSTIKS History.


In 2016 we will again feature a large group of Harvey Golden’s replica aboriginal kayaks.

Like last year, SSTIKS will be offering a group campsite option near the beach. This option will be charged per tent and will include camping on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night. Alternatively, Twanoh now offers campsite reservations. If you prefer the Twanoh state park designated campsites, make your reservation early.

Have a skin on frame qajaq? Be sure to bring it to SSTIKS! Use it, share it with others. SSTIKS is The Place to share what you know and ask questions about kayak and kayak gear building.
And SSTIKS has a fun and lively auction to help keeps costs affordable. We accept cash, checks, and credit cards. And if you are crafty, bring an item to donate to the auction. Past donations have included hand-made notecards, pottery, quilts, wooden spoons, books and more.
