Danny Ching was exposed by his father Al to the sport of paddling at the young age of 11. He would eventually became an exceptional athlete in high school, earning Most Valuable Player honors in water polo, swimming and soccer. In 1970, Al would find the Lanakila Outrigger Canoe Clubin Redondo Beach, where it is now the biggest outrigger club in California.
When Danny is not training for a competition or competijng in one, he’sworking as a lifeguard instructor for Los Angeles County in the Junior Guards program in El Segundo, or coaching outrigger junior and men’s teams. As a very busy man, Danny has stated publicly that he has no intention to compete in the 2012 Olympic Games, despite the fact he has many colleagues and friends on the team.

When he was as young as twenty two, Ching was the number one in California and number three in the world in the most popular outrigger category of the competition: one-man. One man riggers are well known for being twice the speed of a kayak, and Ching took the opportunity to move quickly in his progress in the sport.
