Moloka’i 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships
July 28, 2013
Both stand-up and traditional paddleboarding champions from around the world will gather in Hawaii to test their athletic ability in the most iconic event in the paddling community. The 32-mile crossing of the Ka’iwi Channel connects the islands of Moloka’i and Oahu. More than 2,300 feet deep, the channel creates a funnel effect that shoots billions of gallons of seawater between the islands each hour. Combine that with trade winds, and the seas can range from 8 to 15 feet on an average day and upwards of 20 feet on an extreme day. The Ocean of Hope will have competitors in the race, as well as an information tent in Honolulu. http://www.molokai2oahu.com/
