Na Kama Kai Ocean Clinic for Kids



Na Kama Kai is the brain child of Hawaii waterman Duane DeSoto. Duane is a professional longboarder and also competes in SUP stand up paddle competitions. He is the solo winner for the 2008 Molokai to Oahu race. Duane started Na Kama Kai and you can get more info at I finally got a chance to attend one of their ocean clinics and my kids had a blast. If you have kids, you should definitely take them to one or more of these, especially since they’re free. The clinics are held once a month and you can see the schedule on their site. Here are some pictures and a video I shot from the clinic we attended.
