Hood River Outrigger Canoe Club
In late summer 2012, Josh Sceva brought Oiwi to Hood River. He found a small intrepid group and started paddling the Columbia Gorge on a semi regular basis. HROCC was founded on April 1st 2013 in Hood River, Oregon eventually becoming a 501 (c) 3 in 2017.
We offer members the opportunity to paddle our 6-person Hawaiian canoes (Oiwi, Haku Nalu, Manu Kahawai and Kuakea) as a team for camaraderie, racing, training & fitness.
We now paddle on a regular schedule from April through October on the Columbia River. Our much loved canoes are located at Nichol's Boat Basin in Hood River.
