A Culture…A Lifestyle… A Sport

Hawaiian Outrigger paddling is more than just a sport. It’s part of the greater Polynesian culture that spans many islands in the South Pacific Ocean. Outrigger Canoe Clubs such as ours respect and nurture the Hawaiian culture of the past by adhering to protocol, customs, lore, and values that come from this great society at every opportunity. Respect for our canoes, paddles, and Hawaiian customs are taught along with outrigger canoe paddling.
