A Surfing Canoe is a 4 person outrigger canoe or OC4. Much shorter than a traditional 6 person outrigger canoe this hull has more rocker, or a banana shape, to allows it to turn easy and surf waves without being out of control. Higher gunnels and wider hull also provide for a better canoe surfing experience over a traditional six person outrigger canoe.
