Announcing the Ultimate Fun Run Huaka’i

This year we are proud to announce the Huaka’i “Ultimate Fun Run”. The course for this event is to visit three check points along the way and experience the magic of Na Pali as well as be in a non competitive part of the event for prizes.

This is the best way to be a part of the event, have the safety of the escort boats and lifeguards, check the Na Pali Race paddle off your bucket list, share the camaraderie of other like minds on boards and canoes, and visit the …

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.
“It’s basically a celebration of being out on the water along the Na Pali and just this beautiful, spectacular place,” said event organizer and pro surfer Evan Valiere. “I think the community really likes it and that’s why I keep it going.”

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.

Sunday, August 4, 2013

Kauai’s breathtaking Na Pali coastline tops the bucket list of every distance ocean paddler. This remote coast is best appreciated from the ocean… the highly protected Kalalau Valley, towering convoluted sea cliffs, and stretches of tropical coastline otherwise inaccessible. So it is with much excitement this year that on August 4, two prestigious races will join forces for an unprecedented journey that features all disciplines of paddling.

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.
