Mainland to Oahu Transport

TradePaddleboards will assist with shipping your paddle board from the mainland US to the port of Honolulu. Boards will come in from either Port of Oakland or Port of Long Beach depending on the origin of your paddle board. TradePaddleboards will work with you on the best option for shipping your board out to Honolulu, including

● Pick up at your residence ● Pick Up at your place of business ● drop pff by you direct to the carrier facility

Our team handles all of the logistics and hassle of shipping so you can focus on preparing for the event. We’ll get your board to Honolulu and from there YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING YOUR BOARD TO MOLOKAI. Your board will be available for will-call pick-up at a specified carrier in Honolulu early in the week of July 24. We’ll provide you with detailed instructions and shipping documents once we finalize your shipment. You are responsible for packaging your board for the trip out — we recommend bubble wrap and a padded board bag (or a box!).   Be sure to open an airway also for your board to breath!

BY BOAT – If your escort boat will not take your board (most won’t) there are a few captains that can are set up to take boards.  These boats have racks so your board should be safe, but, if it is sun sensitive, it should be bagged.  The boards will usually be dropped off at the beach near the Kaluakoi on Saturday, so you need to be sure to arrange the meeting time with the captain.

Oahu to Maui

Oahu to Maui for the Maliko race.  Right now there are no definite plans to get boards to Maui from Oahu.  In past years the inter island barge service, Young Brothers used to subsidize trailers for sporting events, but, they have discontinued the program this year.  The cheapest option is to load your board on the Young Brothers container bound for Maui.  The containers have hooks so you can strap your board to the ceiling.  This costs approximately $110 one way.
