2022 SIX-Session Beginner Paddler Introduction Programme
Begins Saturday 27th August
Welcome to the sport of Waka Ama also known as Outrigger Canoe.
What is a Waka Ama?
A waka ama or waka for short, is a canoe with an ama (outrigger) on one side to help with balance. They range in size from the a 6-seater (which is 12 meters long), down to double and single seat canoes.
Who can do it ?
We cater for all ages from 7 yrs and up, with men’s, women’s and mixed divisions. Our oldest member is over 80 yrs old.
How hard is it?
The sessions are usually around 45-60 mins on the water and are low intensity, if you can walk around the Mount, then you will find these sessions easy.
What should I wear?
Something comfortable, shorts and t-shirt, jandals or boat shoes. Jeans and long pants are not suitable. Training usually lasts about 1 hour, so we recommend you bring a drink bottle and some warm clothing for afterwards.
Do I need my own paddle?
No, we supply the canoes, life jackets, paddles and an instructor. The club has training paddles available for use. (You may want to look at purchasing your own paddle later if you love the sport!)
NB: Waka Ama is weather dependant! Safety is paramount!
We provide SIX SESSIONS between 27 August and 22 October 2022
