Building Ohana Paddle Club
Ohana Paddle Club was officially brought to life in July 2021, but it was years in the making beginning back in 2015 when Mike started a race program. He realized that many people use SUP race training as their preferred form of developing and maintaining fitness and the race program provided an avenue for people to enjoy intense focus and goal-setting in paddling.
The program started with six students: three became dedicated racers and the other three became instructors! There was a great community in racing and fitness. Mike became a PaddleFit instructor and ran regular Saturday PaddleFit classes teaching people how to be fit while paddling. He started Team Mike’s Paddle shortly after and has now developed over 50 racers. They had weekly training and went to local, national and international races.
Through Mike’s Paddle, over 30 instructors were developed, and we now have an unmatched community of strong and dedicated paddlers who are mentoring the new generations coming up. This community is now known as Ohana Paddle Club.
