Calm seas, light winds and the presence of Hokule’a set a stunning stage but made for hot and heavy paddling for 125 entrants who raced the 17-mile Na Pali Coast course last weekend. While no records were broken due to the flat conditions, many came close to their best times from the first two years of the race. Kaeo Abbey & Mariko Strickland claimed SUP honors, while Hogan Kania & Erin Wascher won the traditional paddleboard division.
