What's On

Social and race events

Our club organises various social and race waka ama events for members and the general public. There are lots of other waka ama happenings in other parts of the country and further afield.

Maitahi Social & Fun Stuff

Our Social paddles are a great way to get started, to meet people and find out what crews you might like to paddle with. We often go for coffee and a chat afterwards so you can get to meet club members.

If you would like to join in send an email using the Social Paddling enquiries form below.
