Hood River Outrigger Canoe Club

New Paddlers

Interested in Outrigger Paddling?

If you are interested in giving paddling a try rather than joining we would love to have you join us Wednesday’s 5 to 6PM beginning June 13th for our weekly “Tips and Techniques” lessons. Please let us know ASAP if you would like to attend by email at hoodriveroutrigger@gorge.net

Be sure to include your phone # in your email. We will need to arrange to have a paddle and life jacket for you and a count of how many will attend Tips and Techniques each week.

You will also need to FILL OUT 2 WAIVERS, one for our club and one for insurance. We only accept online waivers. Mahalo for your understanding!

1. Must have passed an HROCC beginner’s class.

2. Are already a competent outrigger canoe, surf ski, or SUP paddler in Gorge conditions.

3. Are a true beginner but feel comfortable in high wind and wave conditions in the Columbia and are willing to paddle only with the HROCC “Tips and Techniques” group Wednesdays 5 to 6PM until ready to join our more experienced groups.

If you meet any of the above criteria and want  to join now please email us at hoodriveroutrigger@gorge.net for more details of how to register, what paddle days & times are available for you, what equipment you will need, etc. 

Each new member will be assigned a “Mentor”, usually a board member, to guide you through the process of getting started as a paddler with HROCC.

We look forward to seeing all of you on the water!
