In 1996 the sport of paddleboarding was making a comeback. Once the domain of only the most hardcore of watermen and big wave riders in the 50s and 60s, the sport found a new set of acolytes on the North Shore of Oahu and in Honolulu at the Outrigger Canoe Club. The first Molokai to Oahu race was successfully completed in July 1997. The race was an instant hit with the local media. All of the contestants made history as the first prone paddleboarders to cross the Kaiwi Channel in an organized competitive race, and surfers had found a new challenge to fill annual void created by flat summer surf. This 32-mile journey across the 2,300 foot deep channel has challenged athletes since the first organized outrigger race in 1952. Today the race sells out with both prone and stand up paddleboarders (SUP) from around the world who compete in solo and team divisions.
