welcome to San Francisco Outrigger Canoe Center

If you're interested in trying Hawaiian outrigger canoeing out for the first time, email us for more information.  Come on out to a Saturday practice (9am September through March, 8am April through August) or a Tuesday/Thursday evening practice - 6pm during Daylight Savings time.

Our practice site is in the San Francisco Presidio, on Crissy Field, just a short walk from the Golden Gate Bridge.  We are located in the fenced back lot of the Sports Basement Presidio store.

(Across from Crissy Field) 610 Mason Street, The Presidio, San Francisco.

Come a few minutes early for paperwork and instruction.  No fees are collected until you decide to join, so you are welcome to try us a time or two before paying dues.

No experience is necessary - just the right clothes and a reusable water bottle/drink. Wear warm, layered athletic clothing and shoes that can get wet and bring a set of dry clothes for afterwards. Break out your high-tech workout wear because cotton will make you cold if it gets wet but fleece works well and a windbreaker is nice. All the other equipment (paddles, boats and life jackets that we keep onboard) is already at the practice site.

We hope to see you out there some time soon!
