Noe Sawyer came out of nowhere and showed paddlers what she is made of in her first race of the Kaua’I Hoe Wa’a OC1 Series, beating her closest competition by over five minutes. David Beck maintained his four-race winning streak in the Open Men’s division with his competitors inching a bit closer race by race. Steve Cole was only a minute behind Beck this time with Eric Rafter and Hipo Princena finishing in a tie for third in the 8.5 mile long distance race. Results for both the long and short course follow.

Kauai Hoe Wa’a paddlers had an exciting start to the new season with what many have called “epic” conditions. On Sunday, January 4th, fantastic Westerly winds pushed OC1, OC2, surfski and paddle boarders down the faces of near-perfect swells. Though the conditions were perfect, the race remained challenging due the backwards race course which few have ever paddled; the start was at Port Allen with the finishes at Kukuiula Harbor and Poipu Beach for the short and long courses respectively.
