Steve West Workshop

Steve West Workshop

For the past 20 years Steve West has dedicated his life to the study of outrigger canoeing throughout the Pacific, as a writer, researcher and competitor. Living for the past 25 years on Australia's Queensland Sunshine Coast, world famous for its ocean sports, Steve has been fortunate enough to live amongst some of the world's most accomplished ocean sports paddlers and surfers. He has been a team member (outrigger canoeing) with such names as Grant Kenny - Australia's most famous Iron Man and multiple Molokai to Oahu surf ski winner - and with Jamie Mitchell, the world’s best ever paddleboard champion, Danny Sheard, Chris Maynard and many other world class ocean athletes.

Since 1994 he has devoted his time to the development of Outrigger Canoeing throughout the Pacific. Ten books later, he is considered a world leading authority on the subject, writing the world’s first outrigger canoeing coaching manual. He was Australia’s National Coaching Director for five years and Fiji's National Coaching Consultant to the South Pacific Games Squad for 6 years. He has twice won the world championship Masters division of the prestigious 66km Molokai to Oahu, Molokai Hoe race and the Hamilton Cup International event on numerous occasions and remains a record holder in the 16km and 500m team events. His focus now is on the development of Stand Up Paddlingboarding in the UK and Europe, bringing with him a wealth of knowledge of open ocean canoe sports.

Steve will be running a Paddle Techniques Workshop on Saturday 7th May for any Standup Paddlers out there wishing to take their paddling to the next level

Priced at only £30 per person, this represent truly amazing value for money.

Spaces are limited and we already have advanced bookings, so I would recommend that anyone interested should get in touch with us ASAP.
