Arizona Outrigger – Spring in action

While Na Leo O Ke Kai outrigger canoe weekday training has moved to The Lakes residential community temporarily, our outrigger paddlers are canoeing in the Pacific Ocean and local Arizona lakes on weekends. The iron men’s team, now sponsored by Rogue, Athletes Brand, FieldFit, Eascor and PsychoJock are pushing their distance training at Saguaro Lake. Our athletes are also racing and taking medals in the Southern California Outrigger Racing Association (SCORA) winter series competitions for OC1, OC2, SUP, surfski, rudderless V1 and prone boards. Na Leo O Ke Kai paddlers walked away with four 1st place wins at the very first North Shore Extreme on the Salton Sea, as well as medals at the Hal Rosoff Classic 2016 at Newport Aquatics Center. We also took more 1sts at the Lanakila Classic. Congratulations to Vince San Nicolas (prone), Anne Cook (SUP), Rose Martinez (SUP, OC2), Ceci Ng (OC2) and Peggy (aka Margaret) Coulombe (OC2).  Wishing you all luck for your upcoming events, the Dana Ocean Challenge and PaddleMe Championships (Malibu to Marina).
