Welcome to Pu‘uwai
Outrigger Canoe Paddling
Hui o Mana Ka Pu‘uwai Outrigger Canoe Paddling Club was founded in 1992, and is located at the mouth of the Wailua River on the East side of Kaua‘i. Our long-range goal for the club is to establish a permanent Canoe Hale (Home) on the Wailua River, and thereby ensure that generations of children and adults will have the opportunity to learn traditional Hawaiian Cultural Values. These values include Respect, Loyalty, Responsibility, Trust, Friendship, Fairness, and working together as a Team being there for each other.
We strive to teach and perpetuate the cultural significance of the canoe, as well as the importance of preserving the traditions of the past. Our club is committed to both our members and the community at large. We believe that paddling together builds a strong sense of purpose and friendship that is hard to find elsewhere. The men and women of our club have a commitment to furthering each other physically and mentally, looking out for the well being of one another and together enjoying one of the greatest blessings on earth. Imua Wailua!
We always welcome new paddlers, but the beginning of the season is the best time to start! Practices begin mid-late March for adults, come down to the river at 5pm on Tuesday or Thursday 🙂
