What you'll do

We will begin with a brief history on outrigger canoe paddling and traditions. Following this, we will do some proper paddling warm up exercises and go over our safety checklist. From here we will launch our 2 man outrigger canoe into the waterway at Wrightsville Beach. The paddle session includes marine estuaries, barrier islands and Banks Channel. Dolphin sightings are included and occur frequently! The session can be very relaxing or an intense workout. This is entirely up to you. Expect a minimum of 45 minutes on the water for faster paddlers and about an hour for leisurely ones. This is a 3.2 mile loop around the heart of Wrightsville Beach. A short stretch and a refreshment will be enjoyed at the halfway point. Following our paddle session, we will exit the waterway, wash down the canoe and talk about how much fun we just had on the water!
Other things to note
Dress accordingly for weather and water sport activity. Inclement weather will cancel a reservation with a full refund.

I am an avid outrigger canoe paddler with a true passion for the sport of Hawaiian Outrigger racing. I train 3 to 5 days a week with my 6 man canoe team and also race 1 man outrigger canoes. Hosting will allow me to introduce this sport to many who have never experienced the ancient sport of outrigger canoe paddling and see my home beaches and waterways like never before. In 2017 my team and I qualified and competed in the World Championship of outrigger canoe racing. The Molokai Hoe. A grueling 42 mile open ocean crossing from the island of Molokai to Oahu Hi.

Awesome experience! No prior knowledge or skills needed. Steven was an amazing teacher and made it interesting with all of his history with the sport.
