You might have seen these paddle craft around your home waters. The simple definition is that these are canoes with an “ama” or an arm-shaped piece of rigging that balances the racer in the canoe. The “iaka” are the arms that connect the ama to the boat. The outrigger is generally fastened to the left (port) side of the canoe. Double outriggers have amas on both sides.
The most commonly paddled outrigger canoes are the OC1, OC2, and OC6, which hold one, two, and six people, respectively. These are the outrigger canoes represented in competitions, as well.
Our outriggers are available to claim by calling the shop at (910)679-4473
