Mahalo From Na Pali Coast ‘Ohana

Na Pali Race featured in the Garden Island Sunday Paper

It may be a grueling athletic competition, but being set against one of the world’s most breathtaking backdrops is what makes the annual Na Pali Race (Sunday, Aug. 3) so unique for everyone involved.

Hogan Kania 3X Na Pali Race Paddleboard Champion shares his experience of the 2013 event

In my experience the magic of the Na Pali race starts at the finish line of the Molokai-Oahu Channel crossing, only 7 days before the Kaua’i race.
