Welcome To The Surfers Paradise Outrigger Canoe Club

Surfers Paradise Outrigger Canoe Club, invites you to enter one of the fastest growing sports along the Australian seaboard, the amazing world of Polynesian Outrigger Canoeing.

The First outrigger canoe club was founded in 1908 in the Polynesian islands of Hawaii, Outrigger canoeing, a ‘blue water’ sport, fits perfectly into Australian Culture. It provides for an outdoor activity which develops strong bodies and minds resulting from a sport which is physically and mentally demanding.

This sport requires commitment, respect and a passion of the ocean environment.
