Registration site pending, but potentially in Pinky's parking lot fronting the canal. visit www.kanakaikaika.com for updates.

This race is for Surfskis, OC-1, OC-2 and Paddle Boards. There are two courses. Long course which has four legs and the short course which has two legs and starts from Makai Pier.
