The 2017 season has started!

Whether experienced or new to the sport, we invite you to paddle with us. All ages and abilities are welcome. We have programs for recruitment and development, competitive, and keiki (children’s) paddlers. All adult practices are open to dues-paying members.

All paddlers, whether members or not, are required to complete and sign a SCORA waiver before paddling. Minors must have a parent or guardian sign their waiver. Waivers are available on the beach or you can download one here.

About Lokahi

Founded in 1998, Hui Lokahi O Ke Kai is a member of the Southern California Outrigger Racing Association (SCORA). Lokahi is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization dedicated to organizing, encouraging, and promoting Hawaiian and Polynesian culture and traditions, and perpetuating the “aloha spirit.” We seek to increase community and cultural interaction through the sport of outrigger canoeing.

Coaches

Keikis (Kids)

Outrigger canoeing is an excellent way to develop skills that carry over into many other aspects of life. We are committed to teaching teamwork, paddling technique, water safety and skills, and Hawaiian culture to the next generation of paddlers.

Practices

Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. and, possibly, one weeknight practice. Please verify practice schedule with the coaches.

Crews

Crews are formed based on age, e.g., 12 and under, 16 and under, and 19 and under. There are six kids to a crew.

Practice Schedule

Beginning in early February, to prepare for the racing season, we practice weekend mornings only. Once daylight savings time begins, we add weekday evening practices. The full practice schedule continues until our racing season concludes in mid-September. Our off-season then begins with paddling Saturday mornings only through mid-December.

Members sign up for practice sessions on the Lokahi TeamSnap website or app (returning members are added to the TeamSnap roster when dues are paid). The times and dates of practices may change due to race schedules and holidays.
