### Why another paddling site?
There are so many paddling websites on the internet. Having one place that connects the increasingly global outrigger community is a key goal of OCPaddler. If something is worth reading (viewing or watching) you will find a link to it on OCPaddler. If you don't see it on here, let us know so we can post it up!

Contributed news, photos, articles, videos, notices and anything that has some relevance to the outrigger community is always welcome. This is a community based website; for paddlers, by paddlers. Contributions should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Upcoming events can be added instantly by adding them to the calendar.

### How do I contact OCPaddler?
Email is the preferred method: email@example.com. Feel free to email; We try to reply to all emails. However, sometimes this is difficult. Typically, if you don't get a reply after a week or two, email again. If you have questions that other paddlers may be able to answer please use the forum.
### How did this start?
Keizo created OCPaddler.com in November 2002 as a means to publish a few articles on canoe repair by his dad, Steven Gates. It began as small curiosity in website content management (and paddling of-course), but after realizing the power available in open source software the website immediately expanded to encompass all of outrigger paddling.
