Outrigger Canoe Surfing

The outrigger canoe is a type of canoe featuring one or more lateral support floats known as “outriggers”, which are fastened to one or both sides of the main hull. Smaller canoes often employ a single outrigger on the port side, while larger canoes may employ a single-outrigger, double-outrigger, or double-hull configuration. Outrigger Canoe Surfing is an ancient Hawaiian pastime. For centuries Hawaiians have been surfing waves on outrigger canoes and is one of the coolest things to do on Waikiki Beach.
