Welcome to BASK

Welcome to the new BASK website!

  • We imported everyone’s current username, but we could not copy over your passwords. If you are a current BASK member, click BASK Member Login in the upper right area of the page and request a password reset by clicking the “Need username/password help?” link. If you know your current BASK username or email address, the system will send you a link that will allow you to reset your password. Note: Some members with Comcast and AOL email addresses are experiencing delays receiving the reset email. If that happens to you, write to OnlineMembership@bask.org for assistance.
  • After you log in, please read the announcement on the Members Home page regarding the automated dues reminders that will go out soon.
  • If you have questions or problems with logging in or renewing, write to OnlineMembership@bask.org. Please forward any reminder messages that contain instructions that you’re not able to follow, and provide as much information about your problem as possible.

We hope you enjoy the new site!

Bay Area Sea Kayakers (BASK) is a group of several hundred sea kayakers who live throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Our interests include flat-water paddling, kayak-surfing, expeditions, and playing amongst the rocks, in conditions that range from mild to wild. Our club exists to bring paddlers together for companionship, safety, exploration, learning, and great food and drink!



BASK trips range from local to international, and are all member-initiated with shared responsibilities for safety. BASK does not supply boats or equipment, although some members are willing to share their equipment. You have to be a member or a guest of a member to participate in on-the-water BASK events and a signed activity waiver is required. Follow the links to learn more about the benefits of membership and to join BASK.


We invite you to attend one of our monthly meetings! They are free, open to the public, and include food (suggested donation $8), a featured speaker, club news, and information about upcoming events. It’s a great way to meet club members and learn about paddling opportunities.

For more information see Upcoming Events page!
