The club was first known as the Lanakila Athletic Club, but later changed to Lanakila Outrigger Club and finally changed to King Harbor Outrigger Club. Today everyone "Unofficially" calls it Lanakila Outrigger Club. Launching from the beach every day was hectic and taught the crews to be efficient paddling through surf.
Lanakila is made up of a diverse group of paddlers ranging from our junior paddlers ages 12-19 to our adults ages 19-75, and from varied backgrounds such as lifeguards, firefighters, teachers, and many more. Members come to the team with varying athletic backgrounds, with some looking to be highly competitive and others for the chance to exercise and meet new friends.
