Oc1 Orientation - choose from the list/calendar below to register

No formal Outrigger Canoe programs are planned for 2023.

To huli (flip your outrigger canoe) or not to huli!  That is the question!

  • You will learn how to safely huli in your orientation and then recover. Whether or not you choose to deliberately huli, is up to you.
  • There will be two levels of OC1 rental opportunities based on the abilities acquired during the orientation session, and after more experience. 
  • Until paddlers are able to recover from a huli and assemble and disassemble the equipment they will be required to stay on the north course between the 1000 meter mark and the north shore, and be accompanied by a safety boat or an OC1 paddler qualified to assist you.  
  • Those that show a proficiency in recovering from a huli and equipment assembly and disassembly will be issued level two rental qualifications allowing them to venture off the north course without supervision.  

Choose from the list/calendar below to register, you can switch back and forth from calendar and list view for viewing convenience.
