We believe at KIALOA that when you paddle outrigger canoes you become a part of the ocean, land and people of Hawaii. The Live Like You Paddle Award is an opportunity for students 18 and under to express their love for the Hawaiian Outrigger Culture. The top 5 students who can express it best will win a free KIALOA paddle.
You just have to show us how much you love Outrigger and that you understand how important it is to Hawaiian values; values like Laulima (cooperation), Kuleana (responsibility), Kokua (helping), Ohana (family), or Ha’aha’a (humility).
Here are just a few ideas:

We judge on 4 Criteria:
We will notify winners by the end of June so be sure to fill out the application with your name, address, phone number and e-mail.
Good question! Winners will be chosen for having created the most original way to express their love for outrigger paddling and these students can choose any one hybrid or wood outrigger paddle in our 2019 line-up.*
*Excludes full composite outrigger paddles, dragon paddles or stand up paddles.
