Aloha friends who love all there is to love about stand up paddling on Maui, here’s a short little video for you.
This time of year not only is it peak whale watching season but once in awhile a few special friends join us as we paddle. I’m talking about playful spinner dolphins. While I was out for a long distance training session with my good friend Barb Utech, we were approaching mile 11 in the calm waters near Makena Landing, just south of the Four Seasons Maui Resort.
Another fellow paddler was heading towards us and to our delight, we saw a flurry of activity around him and then fins. We knew they were the friendly ones so we slowed our pace to take advantage of their presence. Barb was overwhelmed as we were so focused on our training it was a more than welcome rest!

Maui’s N. shore attracted over 400 total participants in ocean adventure excitement and adrenaline pumping paddling action. This year was unique with the first inaugural Ohana Fun Paddle which I helped host, to encourage new paddlers to experience a non-competitive 3 mile down wind paddle. Anything you could humanly paddle was welcomed. SUPs, kayaks, one mans, six mans and the special OluKai sailing canoe; Kamakakoa launched from Paia Bay to Kanaha. This was an event within the event. Over 100 paddlers entered the water with a big finish.

Then on up to Maliko Gulch was the big SUP race. The momentum was building as more and more boards began to fill the valley as the paddlers got ready for their 8 mile, more serious race. And what a race!
Thanks to Matthew Murasko, OluKai’s Hawaii Ambassador and team, and to many friends and volunteers this event was over the top. It was so organized, from the start to the finish. The luau, entertainment and award ceremony welcomed not only the racers but our entire island and the world. Join us next year!
