The summer conditions in Kauai offer excellent paddling conditions and options all around the island. This will be a solo clinic, but can include OC6 for those racing the Napali Challenge and would like some race preparation. Safety is emphasized and a full assessment of paddling ability will be done to ensure each paddler is accommodated accordingly and the appropriate location is selected for outings. We will review paddler responses to our questionnaire and tailor the sessions to support each paddlers goals.
Paddlers need to have open ocean paddling experience and the ability to paddle up to 20km. If you are a novice paddler then lessons are recommended. If you are a group of novice paddlers interested in graduating to open ocean paddling then contact us to schedule a session for your group for almost anytime of year.
The canoes will likely be, but not limited to Ares, Pueo, and doubles such as Gemini. The canoes are checked and are in top quality condition. Visit Kai Wa’a and Kamanu Composites for more details on some of the outrigger canoes we use.
*NOTE: We reserve the right to modify clinics into private or semi-private lessons at lesson rates if we don’t have a minimum of 6 paddlers attending a clinic. In the very unlikely event we have to cancel, we will refund your full cost of the clinic. If you need to cancel up to 2 months prior to the scheduled start date of a clinic, we will refund the full amount minus any admin fees charged to us, unless it affects the minimum participation requirement in which case the refund will be 50% minus admin fees. If you cancel within two months of a clinic start date then the refund will be 50% minus admin fee since most of the fixed costs for the clinic will have been paid for and cannot be reimbursed. During the clinic, paddlers are responsible for any damages to the boats they are using. If there are damages, then the instructor or management will determine if the boat needs to be completely replaced or can be repaired.
**Please also note that even for our novice clinics, paddlers must still have adequate experience on an outrigger and must pass the instructors assessment including demonstrating a remount to be permitted to paddle in the open ocean. If you fail the assessment then we won’t be able to refund, but we will try to accommodate a paddling experience in safe protected waters which may have additional costs if a private instructor is required.
