What is an Outrigger (OC):

The OC is a long and narrow craft equipped with an outrigger that helps with balance and makes it very stable. There are one, two and six seater boats. The paddles have an angle in the shaft and a round blade. The OC technique is very similar to dragon boat. A dragon boat paddle can also be used.

Who can use an OC:

From beginner to expert, we want to integrate the OC to our fleet to help you perfect your dragon boat technique while improving your fitness.

Learning to glide an individual craft on the water will greatly help assimilate the many technicalities needed to become an experienced paddler!
