Outrigger Canoe - He'e Nalue

101 Surf Sports could not be happier to be welcoming the Hee Nalu Outrigger Canoe Club to its new home right here in San Rafael California at the 101 Surf Sports Shop!

Outrigger Canoes on Sf Bay

For anyone who has never seen, or ridden, in an Outrigger Canoe it's a must do for any paddler and the best way to do it is by joining a club. The He'e Nalu Club has a deep and rich history paddling the waters of San Francisco Bay and when we heard they needed a new home for the two 6 person Outrigger Canoes and a few other club boats we were stoked to extend some Ohana and welcome the to San Rafael.

Outrigger Canoes take paddling in to the realm of team sports and that means practice. The He'e Nalu Club will be practicing Mondays and WednesdaysTuesdays at 6pm all summer long as well as 9am on Saturdays right here on the San Rafael Creek. Yearly dues to join the club are an incredible value at only $200.

He'e Nalu was founded in 1994 by charter members Philip R. Siaris, Stephanie Ashe, Hovey Lambert, Steve Murphy, Mark Murphy, Steve "cuda" Sandavol and Les Scanlan. On a day harboring northeast winds, a motley crew of courageous men paddled a canoe out of Hyde Street Pier in San Francisco. Through numerous perils, around islands, flats, and tanker ships, they were welcomed to their new home in Marin by the wake of the Larkspur ferry. Hence the name He'e Nalu O' Marin: wave riders of Marin.  The club also sponsors the annual Around The Rock Alcatraz Challenge that see's Canoe clubs from all over descending on San Francisco Bay to meet the challenge that is 'The Rock' 

If you are ready to hit the waters for some clean fun, and good excercise, while surrounded by nice folks than He'e Nalu is for you. Come on down and meet most of the clubs members as part of our Grand Opening Party this Sunday May 6th at 3pm.

Thanks and Welcome He'e Nalu!
