AUTHENTIC PADDLING EXPERIENCE IN TAHITI
OUTRIGGER, WAKA AMA, VAKA OR WA'A... NO MATTER HOW YOU CALL IT - WE ALL HAVE THE SAME PASSION FOR THAT SPORT
Tahiti Va'a Incorporated is a Limited Liability Company based in Tahiti - French Polynesia. It was founded in 2018 just a few months after the IVF Va'a World Sprint Championships in Tahiti.
The sport of Outrigger Canoe Paddling has grown so much all around the world in the past few years that paddling communities are even emerging from unexpected countries like Dubai, Portugal or Morocco.
Our ancestors must be proud to know that a part of our culture has spread over the islands to reach hundreds of thousands of people around the planet who have now dedicated their lives to Va'a.
The mission of Tahiti Va'a Inc is to help paddlers learning about the science behind contemporary Tahitian paddling techniques.
If that's what you've been looking for... then you are in the right place.
Want to know more about Va’a and our Culture ?
For Tahitians Va'a is not just a sport. It is a life style and a sacred art that not only requires sacrifices but 'Tāhō'ē'.
It is a sprititual bridge between the past and the present, a link from their 'Tupuna' to their People.
Va'a comes with a culture, a mindset and commitments.
Respect your opponent as "a Warrior", respect the ocean as "your Family", respect your canoe as "your mother" and respect yourself as "your own life".
'Māuruuru roa' to everyone and keep paddling safe & spreading love around you.
Te aroha ia rahi.
