Women's Coaches


Connie Jensen

Women's Coach

My name is Connie Jensen and I have coached the Kahakai’s women’s team since 2007. I started paddling in 1994 with Santa Barbara Outrigger, and moved back to Long Beach and joined Kahakai in 1997. Kahakai women’s team members are competitive, fun, and have a strong foundation and commitment to our community. We had a winning 2019 season and I’m very excited for the upcoming 2020 season. My goal as the women’s coach this year is to continue the momentum we had last year and maintain the fun, competitive paddling that has made us who were are as a team. Our women’s team is an amazing group of well-rounded women from all different backgrounds and we look forward to another awesome season!
