Kawaihae Surf Park Race Results

As the one man season reaches the end the courses are longer and the competition heats up. Saturday brought a light northerly breeze on some relatively flat water. The short course headed north about 4 miles followed by the long course start paddlers who chased them north for about 5 miles. Both courses returned on a slowly building north breeze to round out the 8 and 10 miles legs.

Good to see all the Keaukaha paddlers out there charging both courses, including our newest member Jason White. (Note these preliminary results have a number of errors regarding places and categories, but the times look correct).

  • Long: Eric, Jeff
  • Short: Keahi, Grant & Kawai, Nahi (Jr. OC2) & Kawika Kekuawela, Greg, Lewis Fleishour (Jr. V1), Mike McConnell, Shai Badon-Dellomes (V1 Jr.), Jason White, Niau Paulos (V1 Jr.), Eha Kiyuna (V1 Jr.), Cother-McKeague La’a (V1 Jr), Waiolukea Publico (V1 Jr.), Malakai Laititi (OC1 Jr.), O-shen Kawaihae (OC1 Jr.)
