The purpose and goals of Santa Barbara Outrigger Canoe Club (SBOCC) are to foster national and international outrigger canoe competition and to generate public interest and support for these activities. SBOCC is dedicated to providing its members with opportunities to race, competing at all levels of competition; from local regional races to world championships in junior, open, master and senior masters divisions.  


Consistent with its commitment to encourage and preserve outrigger canoe racing and to promote international Ho’okuku (competition), SBOCC actively organizes and promotes athletic and educational events and training in this traditional Hawaiian ocean sport for the benefit of the organization’s members and the local community.

SBOCC would like to acknowledge indigenous and traditional heritage. First, we recognize and respect the history of outrigger canoe paddling that traces its roots in Polynesian and Hawaiian culture. We would also like to acknowledge Santa Barbara's local indigenous peoples, especially the Chumash, the original stewards of the land and waters where we recreate. Our team aims to do our best (although we know it won’t be perfect and we are eager to learn) to give the utmost respect to these people, history, and culture as we perpetuate the tradition and love for outrigger canoe paddling.
