We are a local non-profit organization (501(c)3) located in Charleston, South Carolina that is passionate about paddle sports, physical fitness, fellowship and protecting our waterways. Our regular events include weekly dragon boat practices, outrigger canoeing, and various social and volunteer events throughout the year.
