What is paddling all about?

According to Coach Leggs and Coach Boy, paddling is truly about something deeper than it seems. While most people would simply think of paddling as a competitive sport or hobby, they feel it is a connection to their ancestors and a way of life. If you apply the mindset you have in the canoe - the connectedness and cooperation - to the world, you will be able to interact with others on a higher level.

Club History

It was founded in the summer of 2005 by several prominent Anahola community members. It was originally created for the kids to help prevent suicide and help them to get into the right mindset.

What does our name mean?

Hokualele : Shooting Star

The name Hokualele also comes from a mountain in the Anahola area

Our Canoes

Our main race canoe, Ka'ohuokalani, came from Coach Leggs' grand-aunty Adeline Mahuiki Ogawa. She took care of the canoe maker, Sonny Bradley, when he was a keiki.

Keiki Paddling

During the school season, we have a portion of our club schedule and resources dedicated specifically for school-age keiki. They participate in competitions with the school teams and other paddling clubs. It's always fun for the keiki to get to hang out with their friends and build teamwork skills. If you wish to sign a keiki up for the upcoming season, please contact one of our coaches or board members.

Thank you to our sponsors!

A big mahalo to Olukai for sponsoring our new canoe!
