Social & Novice

If you’ve never paddled before, or if you have in the past and just want to dust off the cobwebs… Contact us, come down to Mooloolaba and give it a go!
Your first 6 sessions of paddling (from the date of your session) in an OC6 are free. Come along to the SNAP sessions in the calendar.
Junior social/novices (aged 10-19 years) please contact Sunshine Coast Junior Paddling Development (who race nationally as Mooloolaba OCC) for more information.
Are there any requirements?
You must be able to swim competently in the ocean. We train in all conditions in exposed waters and you will get wet!

No Limits Program

For the first time in the history of outrigger canoe racing in this country, the Australian Outrigger Canoe Racing Association (AOCRA) has introduced No Limits Adaptive Paddling (AP) classes and events for people with physical disabilities. Opportunities are now available for adaptive paddlers to participate in recreational activities and competitive outrigger canoeing events.
Mooloolaba Outrigger Canoe Club (MOCC) has been taking the lead in the development of the program and conducted a Come & Try Day in October 2013. From there the club now has a group of men and women paddling and training on a regular basis. Many have transferred across from other sports such as road racing, tennis, swimming and basketball, and those who have been bitten by the bug are now coming along for recreational sessions – including joining the Novice paddlers in team boats on Sunday mornings on the open ocean. Come along to the SNAP sessions in the calendar.
So, the sky is the limit for these athletes. That is why the name “No Limits Adaptive Paddling” has been chosen.

Training Sessions

What do I bring?

We will provide paddles and safety gear for social/novice paddlers. However, please be aware we paddle in the open ocean in varying conditions much of the time. If you are not a strong swimmer (cannot swim a minimum 400m or tread water for 10 minutes) and need to wear a Type 1 PFD while paddling, you may wish to bring your own compact model.

Please see our Safety page for more information. Bring clothes you don’t mind getting wet – board shorts, rash shirt or anything quick-drying – plus a hat, drink bottle (ideally with a bottle holder that straps around your waist), sunscreen and sunglasses, if you wish.

However, please don’t bring or wear anything in the canoe that you would be devastated to lose to the ocean! It’s also always good to bring a change of clothes, a towel and maybe even a plastic bag to throw your wet gear into.
