 What to expect in our Outrigger Canoe Sessions:

– You will get wet!  And will be under the sun for max 1.5 hours. Be in proper beach wear.
– Intro to SPC, a bit of our history and outdoor culture
– Intro to outrigger canoeing, boat and paddle parts, seat roles, calls, paddling technique
– Swim test
*No, we will not ask you to do laps. We just need to make sure that you are comfortable floating in the ocean for at least 5mins.*
– Capsize theory and drill
*Don’t worry, we will explain the procedure on land first and will do the actual capsize drill in a calm area of the beach.  This is mandatory for all newbies because we do paddle out into the Southern Islands and we want everyone to be mindful of safety, minimize the risks, and focus on having fun paddling!*
