Hanalei Canoe Club

Paddled with the Hanelei Canoe Club on Kaua'i.  Wonderful people, great ocean environment and strong team paddlers. Was great motivation for me to get on the water and initiate some real training efforts.

My favorite outing was the day we paddled in some larger swell...surfed a bunch and even flipped the canoe (I take credit for the flip...was seated in number four seat and should have been watching the ama closer... ;-P live and learn). Was fun to learn how to recover such a big paddle-craft. Coach Christian said we could check huli and swamped boat recovery training off our checklist...lol

I donated my canoe paddle to the club prior to leaving. A big Maholo to all those folks at the HCC.
