Waka Ama

Would I like to be in a Waka Ama race?

Yes, I would like to be in one because you would learn to work together with other people. 

My other reasons are:

It is similar to kayaking which I am quite good at.

Waka Ama looks cool and fun to do.

I like doing things on the water.

The reasons why I would not do it:

Look like a lot of hard work.

It would be hard to get the timing of the paddles just right.

You would have to do a lot of practice whatever the weather is.

I still know that I would like to do it.


  1. Hi Abby,

    Great answers! you have really given some great reasons as to why you would or wouldn't like to be in a Waka Ama race. I also think that the timing of the paddles would be important, good spotting!

    What do you think makes Waka Ama look like so much fun? do you think working in a team would make the races fun or is there another reason you can think of?

    I'm really impressed that you are good at kayaking already! What other water activities do you enjoy?
    I like to go to the beach and body surf or boogie board with my older brother (we get very competitive!)

    Hope you get the chance to do some water activities this summer when you're having a break from your blogging Abby!

    Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Ellee
      Thanks for give me some good feedback. I like play on my bogie board at the lake. The other fun thing I thought was paddling fast together.

  2. Hi Abby!

    No problem your posts have been great to read :)

    Oh wow at a Lake! do you also get to go on a doughnut?

    Yeah paddling fast together would be fun in a Waka Ama ..I wonder how fast you could go?!

    Great post Abby - Thanks for replying!
