The arrival of new composite technologies has turned the ancestral dugout into a formidable machine for gliding and pleasure. The practice of the Hawaiian dugout canoe, which has become light, resistant and easily dismantled, has thus become the king sport of the Polynesian islands before developing outside its natural borders.
In Europe, the development of this activity was limited by the very small quantity of canoes available on the market. It is from this shortage that the Waïna Outrigger Organisation project was born in 2009...
We wanted to manufacture in FRANCE our own models of outrigger canoes in order to offer to the enthusiasts a quality and an irreproachable service after sale. 8 years later, Woo has become the European reference in terms of canoe manufacturing: we now export to Spain, Portugal, Italy, Norway, Canada, Cape Verde, and Costa Rica and are also present in Reunion and Guadeloupe.
