The Early Days

We started in 2003 with the Maui to Molokai Challenge…..windsurfing which led to Outrigger canoes and Hobie Cats with kites and eventually SUP in 2008. 

We were also blessed with University of Hawaii giving the youth sports clinics as you can see in the posters


Molokai Holokai 2010

2010 marked a year with the Molokai Holokai. Although we did not do the crossing this year, it was the beginning for some of the youth on Molokai

The journey begins with the local kids

After having some amazing crossings before our local kids decided to do their own thing with the Molokai Holokai on Molokai hosted by the Molokai Ohana Surf Club


2011 marked the year for the Molokai kids to take to the channel with the Maui to Molokai race. Having seen young Zane cross in 2008 these kids were ready to go!


Well we never gave up with the concept of inspiring our Molokai youth but instead of competing with the other new Maui to Molokai, we decided to focus on a local event instead and work together with Maui.
