Got any old paddles you don’t want? Help our Keiki!

April 5th, 2014

Aloha Everyone!!!

Puna Kids are currently in search for paddles for the upcoming regatta season.  If you have any old/used paddles you’d be willing to donate, or sell for cheap, please get in touch with Coach Jeremy or our “Contact Us” page.  We could really use your help!

Remember what it was like when you got your own personal blade for the first time?  Help these kids graduate from plastic to wooden paddles!  Any support is welcome!

Boy Scouts – Troop/Pack 42 Paddle

April 25th, 2013

Puna CC is not all about competition.  This past weekend we hosted the boy scouts troop/pack 42 in a fun introduction to the lifestyle and sport of paddling.  They learned the different parts of a canoe and some basic etiquette’s of our hawaiian culture.  The club is able to accomodate community members by the generosity of the U.S. Army Garrison’s donation of paddles to the club.  We wish Troop/Pack 42 luck at their next adventure camp out at Miloli’i.

Big Mahalo to the Novice A ladies, Leimomi, Nona, Trevella, Kahili, Tasha, & Coach Nick  for volunteering to make it happen!!

A hui hou!
