When I was flipping though tv channels this afternoon, I came across a traveling show talking about the Pacific Rim and how a lot of the natives use/used to fish on an outrigger. These days use the boats for racing in but shows got me thinking and how I miss the long practices. Being able to paddle by yourself in a solo boat and or paddle in a crew of you and 5 others is amazing. In huge waves off one of the many islands of Hawaii to paddling in calm waters out around here.
I’ve been wanting to be getting back into outrigger since forever but I’ve just been finding it hard to do so when my Dragon Boat practices are on the same days as the outrigger practices. I miss being able to do both sports. Some days I just wish I could clone myself.
Went though most of my paddling clothing this afternoon, to see what still fit and what doesn’t (boxing up old uniforms etc) well lets just say mothering hips SUCK!!! I hope I can fit into my winter paddling gear once season starts again
