Waka Ama is a water sport which engages the upper body primarily and mid-section for a strong paddle
stroke. Anybody can paddle. You don’t have to have had experience nor do you have to be fit. These things
will develop over time.
Waka Ama is a very enjoyable water sport. All safety procedures are strictly in place at all times during paddle
trainings / races. Life jackets are supplied.
Trainings are at Lake Pupuke. We are associated with Taniwha Waka Ama Club. Sugar TePaa is Head Coach.
Audrey Wikiwhiri is also the Assistant Coach to Sugar.
Often we travel away at a minimal cost to Waka Ama races and National Secondary Schools events.
I look forward to meeting all the new paddlers.
