In the last hundred years paddling has evolved into one of Hawaii's most loved pastimes and competitive sports. Outrigger canoes sit at almost every beach and in the nearby waters canoes pass by and teams practice for regattas. Outrigger canoe paddling is a physically and spiritually fulfilling experience a way to connect with the beauty and mana of the ocean. To celebrate this noble sport, Tay Perry has assembled a notable collection of proverbs and quotes and has paired them with vintage and contemporary photos. The result is a nostalgic portrait of paddling from its Polynesian roots through contemporary times.
