The Virtual V.3 Edition – Live weekend of July 29-31, 2022
2022 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships is CANCELLED
We appreciate your patience as we worked with the local community of Moloka’i to find a safe pathway to hold the 24th edition of the M2O. Initially, we were excited to see Covid-19 restrictions for outdoor events lifting in Hawaii along with clear safety protocols to ensure a safe environment for all athletes, staff, and the communities that our event touches. However, the community of Moloka’i are still vulnerable from the impacts of the pandemic and have asked the paddling communities to focus on a safe return to racing in 2023. We can’t wait to return to the shores of Molokai and crown new world champions.
