When Jean Raas first started out, Outrigger Canoe was practically unheard of, however, he quickly realized the potential and teamed up with Ozone to expose the sport to a wider audience and establish Outrigger Canoe paddling in Florida. Over the last decade, we have seen more and more people take to paddling, with events like the Clearwater Beach Classic and Nish Paddle Fest, Florida is not only growing at the grassroots, but we are becoming a destination for paddlers looking to experience paddling in the beauty of Florida.
“Our vision is to support the growth of the sport in Florida and enrich the experience. We seek to accomplish this vision through involvement with canoe clubs, coaching, event organization, athlete education, and access to the best quality outrigger canoes, OC1, OC2, OC6, Surfski Kayak, Paddles, Accessories, and more.”
Contact Ozone Florida to learn how they can help you learn more about paddling, or if you would like to demo a canoe for yourself or your canoe club. With representation on both the West & East coasts of Florida and available via phone or email Jean and Brianne Raas are here to help.
