Head Strong Race Results

Last weekend before the high school races started a large group of paddlers gathered on the edge of the beach to show their support for Noah. The Head Strong race was put on by Kwai-Chang and Corrina from So Juicy and all the fees went to help Noah and his ‘ohana keep their heads strong during Noah’s treatment.

Race Meeting and Pule under the snow covered mauna

We had a variety of paddlers of all levels and crafts. Lots of OC2’s to surf behind and even a paddle boarder charged the 5 mile course along with several Novice B paddlers.

Special shout out to Linda who joined the race as her 2nd time ever on an OC1. Hell yeah!

One foot on the sand start

Lots of Keaukaha Paddlers out there chasing each other around the course and sprinting to the finish.


There weren’t any prices, or categories just a chance to get out and paddle for a good cause. Noah is back home with family and recovering from his surgery before starting treatment.
