Grounded in Tradition

Paddling has been a part of Hawaiian heritage since early Polynesians navigated thousands of miles of open ocean guided by nothing more than currents, wind and stars. The Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships honors the spirit and accomplishments of these voyagers with the most challenging prone/stand-up paddle race in the world.
