Kamanu Canoe Clinics

Our individually tailored outrigger clinics are designed for you to be able to make the most of your canoe. We offer three types of lesson formats:

Kaua'i World Challenge OC-1 Camp:
In five days we'll cover the entire spectrum of outrigger paddling:
  •  Culture 
  •  Stroke
  •  Surfing
  •  Nutrition
  •  Training
  •  Race Strategy
  •  Weight Training
  •  Safety
    Our Kaua'i World Challenge OC-1 Camp will run from Sunday May 7th through Thursday May 11th. Each participant has the use of a Pueo throughout the entire week and for use in the Kaua'i World Challenge on May 13th. The clinic will be primarily focused on the OC-1 with some V-1 integration for those who are interested.

    Coach Luke Evslin will be running all five sessions. 

    To maintain a high level of individualized coaching, each camp is limited to ten people. Most of the camp will be held in the ocean, and participants are expected to race in the Kaua'i World Challenge-- so you must have a minimum of two years of paddling experience.

    If you have any questions, email Luke at luke@kamanucomposites.com.  

    Hourly Lessons:
    We offer individualized lessons on both Kaua'i and O'ahu for the OC-1 and V-1. We strongly recommend anyone who has never paddled before to sign up for at least one lesson before purchasing a canoe. But, these lessons can also be tailored to any level of paddler from beginner to advanced, and can cover anything from canoe care, to stroke, to advanced surfing. Sign up and we'll contact you to schedule a time. If you're interested in a lesson for more than one hour, or multiple lessons on multiple days, then email us for details and pricing information. 

    Custom Kaua'i group clinics:
    While our other clinics are all OC-1 focused, we can create a group clinic for OC-6 or V-1 tailored exactly to your group's needs. If you have five or more people, contact us at luke@kamanucomposites.com to arrange a custom camp for your needs.
