Fantastic day waka ama whanau….celebrating Matariki in style! This is what Matariki is all about – doing the things you love with whanau, friends and supporters.
Thanks to all our fabulous volunteers that made this event a success, we could’nt do this without you and the support of our community, learning new skills on and off the water.
Waka ama at Hikoikoi and Hoe Tonga looks healthy with 170+ paddlers taking to the water and another 50+ supporting and catching up on the beach – fantastic atmosphere.
Thanks to the coaches and managers who share their knowledge and educate our rangatahi – the next generation of paddlers.
