Join us at Mother's Beach in Marina del Rey to
discover a new way to enjoy the ocean, get a good
workout and have fun!
Founded in 1967 by Steve Kekuewa and Sandy Kahanamoku (nephew of the late and great Duke Kahanamoku).
MDROCC is a non-profit, private organization dedicated to giving people from all walks of life the opportunity to enjoy the sport of outrigger canoe paddling. The club is managed by a volunteer Board of Directors and supported by membership fees and donations. All donations are tax deductible and go directly to our programs.
As a member of the Southern California Outrigger Racing Association (SCORA), we strive to share our wealth of culture and athletic camaraderie with the community at large.
