In 2015 the Waka Ama NZ /Ngā Kaihoe o Aotearoa Board had great pleasure in announcing the establishment of a ‘virtual’ Hall of Fame to permanently recognise outstanding contributors to the sport of waka ama in New Zealand/Aotearoa.

The concept of a Wall or Hall of Fame is commonly accepted practice in all nations that wish to honour people who have contributed and continue to contribute to the establishment and growth of particular sports, whether as competitors or administrators or both.
