New York Outrigger is a community of dedicated and inspired paddlers living in New York City. Our goal is to provide New Yorkers with the unique opportunity of experiencing their city through its waterways. As a volunteer-driven nonprofit we strive to educate New Yorkers about outrigger canoe paddling and its roots in Polynesian culture.
As a community NYO comprises a diverse group of people. Our interests and backgrounds are as varied as the city we call home. From Ironman triathletes to recreational paddlers, NYO runs the gambit. Our diversity allows for an exciting and dynamic group whose camaraderie is derived from a shared love of paddling and being on the water.
