About our club

Founded in 1991 by Hawaiian enthusiasts and dedicated athletes Meg and Dave Chun, the goal of the club was and continues to be to perpetuate the spirit and traditions of Hawaiian culture and outrigger paddling here in Bend, Oregon. The Chuns knew the joy of paddling, of six people in a canoe pulling together, would catch on in Bend. And they also believed that the spirit of community that embraces paddlers around the world — what Hawaiians call ohana — would be just as infectious in Bend.


They were right.


BOO has introduced Hawaiian outrigger canoe paddling to athletes of all ages and abilities ever since. Its crews have competed successfully in races in the Pacific Northwest, Hawaii and internationally. From spring to fall, BOO crews are a fixture on the Deschutes River and at races in Oregon and Washington sponsored by the Pacific Northwest Outrigger Canoe Racing Association. Throughout, BOO paddlers have remained true to the ideal that brought them together: With each stroke, our paddlers — from the novices to the veterans — pull together toward a common goal. We hope you will join us.


We are an official member of the Pacific Northwest Outrigger Racing Canoe Association. Visit PNWORCA to learn more!
