Personal Property

Personal property should be respected at all times. Personal items left or temporarily stored in the O Kalani site are the responsibility of each individual member. O Kalani accepts no liability for damages or theft of equipment or members’ personal property including canoes and surf-skis, paddleboards, backpacks, clothing, paddles, or other items that are stored at members’ own risk. OC-1 and OC-2 canoes and surf-ski storage can be accommodated for members on a first-come, first-serve basis, space-permitting in coordination with the O Kalani Board and the canoe storage term set forth. An annual fee must be paid for storage of such watercraft. No personal property or equipment (e.g. bikes, motorcycles, surfboards, SUPs etc.) other than temporary/daily storage of paddles, personal clothing and practice gear is allowed at O Kalani’s site.


Safety is paramount both on and off the water. Violence or illegal drugs, in any form, will not be tolerated. On-water safety protocols must be followed. For example, before taking the OC-6 on the water for practice, it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure the canoe is properly equipped with at least 6 personal flotation devices (PFDs), 2 bailers, 1 bucket, and 1 backup paddle. If you cannot swim, you are required to wear a PFD while in the canoe. It is each member’s responsibility to carry a PFD while on an OC-1.

I understand that it is my responsibility to uphold the Member Code of Conduct. I understand that O Kalani promotes an open forum of communication, and l should follow the procedures to make myself heard. I understand that I have the power and responsibility to make a positive difference as a member of O Kalani. Given just cause, I understand that the Board of Directors reserves the right to revoke my membership.
Member Code of Conduct *
Participation Waiver
In consideration of and in participation with O Kalani Outrigger Canoe Center, any of its agents, officers, volunteers, participants, and all other persons or entities acting in any capacity on their behalf (hereinafter collectively referred to as ‘O Kalani’), I hereby agree to release and discharge O Kalani on behalf of myself, my children, my parents, my heirs, assigns, personal representatives and estate as follows:

1 I acknowledge that outrigger paddling and other paddle sports entail known and unanticipated risks, which could result in physical or emotional injury, paralysis, death, or damage to myself, to property, or to third parties. I understand that such risks simply cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity. I assume those risks and release O Kalani of liability resulting from those risks. The risks include, among other things: boat capsizing; tidal conditions and currents; travel in remote areas; collision with objects or other watercraft; prolonged exposure to cold water; hypothermia, accidental drowning; illness in remote areas; exposure to sun, strong wind, cold storms, large waves, eddies and whirlpools, and lightning; aggressive and/or poisonous marine life; bodily injuries; slips and falls while hiking; and rapidly changing adverse weather and water conditions. O Kalani and its members seek safety, but they are not infallible; they may be unaware of a participant’s fitness or abilities; they might misjudge the weather, the elements, or the terrain; they may give inadequate warning of instructions and the equipment being used might malfunction.

2 I expressly agree and represent that I understand the nature of outrigger canoe paddling and that I am qualified, in good health, and in proper physical condition to participate in such activity. Additionally, I agree to wear a US Coast Guard approved personal flotation device (PFD) while participating in this activity when applicable. I further agree and warrant that if at any time I believe conditions to be unsafe, I will immediately discontinue further participating in the activity. My participation in this activity is voluntary, and I elect to participate in spite of the risks.

3 I hereby voluntarily forever release, discharge, and agree to indemnify and hold harmless O Kalani from any and all claims, demands, or causes of action (collectively, “Claims”), which are in any way connected with my participation in this activity or my use of O Kalani’s equipment or facilities, including any such Claims which allege negligent acts or omissions of O Kalani.

4 Should O Kalani, or anyone acting on their behalf be required to incur attorney fees and costs to enforce this agreement, I agree to indemnify and hold them harmless for all such fees and costs.

5 I certify that I have adequate insurance to cover any injury or damage I may cause or suffer while participating, or else I agree to bear the costs of such injury or damage myself. I further certify that I have no medical or physical conditions which could interfere with my safety in this activity, or else I am willing to assume – and bear the costs of – all risks that may be created, directly or indirectly, by any such

6 In the event that I file a lawsuit against O Kalani, I agree to do so solely in the state of California. I further agree that the substantive law of that state shall apply in that action without regard to the conflict of law rules of that state. I agree that if any portion of this agreement is found to be void or unenforceable, the remaining portions shall remain in full force an effect.

By signing this document, I acknowledge that if anyone is hurt or property is damaged during my participation of O Kalani paddling and related activities, I may be found by a court of law to have waived my right to maintain a lawsuit against O Kalani on the basis of any claim from which I have released them herein. I have had sufficient opportunity to read this entire document. I have read and understood it, and I agree to be bound by its terms.
