Shoreline Lake's Aquatic Center is now home to Ho’oku’i (Hawaiian for "to join together”), the Bay Area's newest outrigger canoe club.
Given the excitement both adults and kids generate for this ancient and thrilling sport – especially kids (keikis) – Shoreline and Ho’oku’i are inviting everyone to free, monthly Community Days, from 10am-2pm, through the warm season (April - October) that will include seminars, hands-on outrigger action, and lots of fun on the Lake.
As the only place in the lower Peninsula/upper South Bay area to check out the action, it’s a unique opportunity to see, and be part of, a six-person outrigger crew driving a 400 pound, 45-foot long, 20-24 inch wide sleek canoe, by paddling at 64-68 strokes per minute as one powerful and gracefully precise unit.
To encourage membership, practice times are 5:30pm-7:30pm (Monday-Thursday) through the end of July.
Come by, try something a little different, and have a great time!
