We ♥ Waka Ama

You may have noticed in the banner of our website something a little different. Through a series of videos, we wanted to capture the diverse faces of our waka ama whānau. We asked them what they love about waka ama and what it means to them. We think waka ama is for everyone...all shapes and sizes, genders, ethnicities, old, young and everyone in between!! Our diversity page shows a number of different paddlers from all over the world. Check out their stories below ☺

As a result of this analysis, Waka Ama New Zealand has decided to increase the Sprint Nationals Event from the current 6 days format to 7 days of racing for all future Sprint Nationals events.
