Mahalo From Na Pali Coast ‘Ohana

…The Na Pali Coast `Ohana wishes to express mahalo nui loa to all the participants, logistical support, volunteers, sponsors and Evan and his family. The awareness continues to be raised with each passing year of the sacred quality and ecological fragility of Na Pali. The donations generated by the event have supported the NPCO’s unified efforts of restoration, education, and preservation. This past year saw lots of late rains and the first team that came into Nu’alolo Kai for work access had their hands full of clearing the winter’s growth …

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.

Now in its fifth year, the Na Pali …

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

When asked to write a story about The Na Pali race, I cannot help but feel the English language would not do it justice. August 4, 2013 marked the 4th annual Na Pali Race, a day that I look forward to all year. 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. I say magic because in a state of pure exhaustion, a place where happiness SHOULD BE a cold beer and no …

5th Annual Na Pali Race


The Na Pali Paddleboard Race is THE destination race that should be on every paddle boarders bucket list. If you are looking for a destination race this summer, you want to extend your Molokai 2 Oahu trip by a week, or you didn’t make it to Molokai this year but you still want to test yourself in a Hawaiian downwind race – you need to be visiting Kaua’i in August.
