The Molokai 2 Oahu PADDLEBOARD World Championships

The world's most challenging paddle race


Thanks to our valued sponsors

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.


Known as foiling, elite athletes will compete for the first world title atop standup paddleboards equipped with hydrofoil technology, which could produce the fastest ever crossing of the famous Ka’iwi Channel.

Race Art
