The following quote comes from Cali Paddler and was recently re-shared with our paddling ohana:
"Every stroke you pull is passed right back to the person behind you. Make sure its full of positive energy.
Every breathe you exhale is passed to the person ahead of you. Make sure its full of positive spirit.
And last but not least…it is always an honor to paddle in an outrigger canoe."
Some of our dedicated members who volunteer for the many FUN tasks like lettering the boats.
