Alternate event date TBA
The only reason for event cancellation would be a circumstance such as a natural disaster or other unpredicted event that would not allow us to run. Also if ocean conditions are determined to be unsafe for the event a new date will be announced. Typically during this time of year conditions are ideal for the Na Pali.
