What an amazing day to be on the water in beautiful Dana Point!  22 miles of beautiful water and teaming with dolphins was a good sign for this race.

Ka Nai'a came ready to kick some butt; finishing 8 minutes in front of the 2nd place team, this change crew has a lot to be proud of - Did it, did it, did it!

Crew: John Parker, Tommy Perez, Katie Langhorne, Piper Presley, Jessie Gonzales, Megan Phillips, Bruno Casillas, Amber McEldowney & Christie Fudurich.

Local Business loves Ka Nai'a!

A fun group from NETWORK HARDWARE RESALE came to play with the dolphins! Had a great team building experience paddling together, learning about outrigger, watching the sunset and competing with each other in a mini sprint race!

Thank you Ka Nai'a!

Race season has officially begun! Last week Ka Na'a traveled to San Diego for the first race at Crystal Pier!  The weather was sunny and beautiful; a perfect way to kick everything off.  To top it all off the Women's Short Course team brought home some shiny 1st place medals!

Not too shabby - congrats, ladies!
Looking forward to another fabulous summer!

Novice Graduation 2011

posted Aug 5, 2011, 10:59 AM by Megan Phillips

    The Ka Nai'a novice of 2011 are quite simply unlike any other group the club has seen in many years.  Not only were they doing long distance paddles early in the winter, some of them experienced their very first change practice on their way to Santa Cruz island.  (60 miles!) Talk about a trial by fire!

    Congrats to the Ka Nai'a novies! After a fun down swell journey from Santa Barbara to Ventura Harbor, they were all surprised with fun gifts and a little graduation ceremony.  

We are so proud of you, we love you, we are so excited to welcome you into the family!
