    A friends copy of an old LP book says:
    Cheung Chau Windsurfing Centre at Tung Wan beach
    Hong Kong Canoe Union in Causway Bay
    Wong Shek Water Sports Centre in Sai Kung
    and one i've personally seen, the
    Tai Meii Tuk Water Sports Center, right down the road from tai po

    I'd be up for a trip sometime if you need a partner. I havn't done any since the 50 mile trip in the scouts, so i'm probably a bit rusty

    You might want to try contacting the Tuen Mun Canoe Club, who I know absolutely nothing about other than having seen a truck full of canoes with their name on it parked on the same street as my work...

    Website doesn't have an obvious "Help, I can't read Chinese" button, but there's a phone number listed (24300330) and there's probably an email link or two around.

    I'll try to go by there this week and see what i can find out. Last time i walked by it looked like something was going on, so i'd guess they're open.

    You can rent kayaks by the hour at Treasure Island in Pui O on Lantau Island. I'm not sure if there is any requirement to prove that someone in the group has some clue what they are doing...
    The website is http://www.treasureislandhk.com/ but it's not very up to date...
