Headed toward Diamond Head is the Outrigger Canoe Club. The Outrigger Canoe Club is a private club founded in 1908 on the beach at Waikiki. The original clubhouse was a grass hut on the beach. They moved to the current location and clubhouse in 1964. Many of its members are third and fourth generation members. Although the Club was founded as a surfing club to provide dressing room facilities for men and boys who had no easy access to the good surfing areas of Waikiki, it grew into the Club which espouses not only surfing, but a dozen other sports, social activities, historical programs, dining facilities and spectacular sunsets.
