Na Pali Challenge OC6 Prep Clinic
Sunday, August 2 – Wednesday, August 5, 2020
*Paddlers must supply their own leash, paddles, PFDs, and fill in the online waiver form.
If you’re planning on participating in one of the most scenic Outrigger races on the planet or just wanting to do some summer outrigger paddling in Kauai, then make the most of your trip by taking our popular Summer Napali Prep Clinic. Depending on participant interest, this clinic can can be a combined OC6 and OC1 clinic suitable for all levels of paddler**. The clinic is scheduled so that you can optionally race the Na Pali Challenge (not included in the clinic cost) which is a change race consisting of a team of 6 men and 6 women alternating shifts.
You will get the proven Tahitian style stroke technique along with OC6 practicing in warm blue Kauai waters to include roles in different seats, OC6 wave catching, water changes, steering tips, training tips, and more. For those racing the Napali Challenge, we will cover race preparation, selecting the optimal line, locations to stay clear of, and more so that there are no surprises come race day.
It doesn’t get any better than being out in paradise on the solo where you’ll not only see amazing scenery but experience it.
Ask about a group rate if you have 6 or more paddlers!
*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 please note that 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.
