KIOCC's philosophy focuses on perpetuating the Hawaiian culture and spirit through outrigger canoeing. We work hard to combine an appreciation for family, nature, community, and competitiveness while having tons of fun.
The KIOCC club is 'Ohana (family). This is a wise Hawaiian saying to which our club adheres:
'A'ohe hana nui ke alu 'ia. "No task is too big when done together by all." -from 'Olelo No'eau: Hawaiian Proverbs & Poetical Sayings by Mary Kawena Pukui.
...and here's a cheer that KIOCC says after each practice session: 'E kahi, 'e lua, 'e kolu, imua lokahi! "One, two, three, onward together!"
We welcome everyone interested in learning to paddle an outrigger. Veteran team members will introduce you to the basics needed to build skills and paddles are available in the equipment shed. It is highly recommended that you bring your own hydration
