Cool weather top

Back to OC1. Live on east coast USA. Lookin for cool weather top that’s not super tight like wetsuit, etc, Something for spring and fall. Lookin at the Vaikobi one. Warm but unrestricted...easy to get on and off.

Steering blade shapes: Tahitian vs "regular"

More and more paddle companies (at least, that sell on the Internet) are offering "Tahitian" style steering blades for V6/OC6 with taller (?), skinnier, lozenge-shaped blades. For folks who use or have used them: how are they similar to and different from more traditional (well, for the last 25 years anyway) steering blades, such as the Foti and Biscuit (Kialoa), or Ahi and Aku (Kai Ko'o)?


Paddling DVD

Will try again. I suffered a bad snowboarding accident a few years ago. Thought my paddling days were over. I did get out on my OC1 this past summer. Found I’m really deconditioned. It’s turning cold here. I’m trying to get my conditioning better. Do the paddle erg, stationary bike, elliptical, etc. Have one paddling video.....te aito from 2012. Videos/DVD’s keep me sane and are inspirational. Any recommendations would be appreciated. I don’t know how to look for them. Mahalo.

Molokai Hoe and Team Break Down


I am trying to figure out the names of the paddlers and nationalities of the top teams that raced in the Duke's Race. It looks to be an exciting lead up to Molokai Hoe


Hui Nalu-Oceania

Lanikai-I know local.

Also, is Red Bull going to be same crew from last year?

I know Shell Vaa will be hungry this year.


Best paddling PFD

Hey, I used to swim like a fish. Now, since my accident, I sink like a rock! Want to get back on my OC1. What’s the least restrictive/best paddling pfd to get?

Red Bull Vaa Molokai Video?

Red Bull Vaa had an 8 person documentary film crew travel to Big Island prior to Molokai Hoe and filmed the entire 2 days prior to and the Molokai Race. Does anyone have details on when the film or video will be released? Maybe it came out already and I missed it.


DVD, videos

Hey, I was in a snowboarding accident almost 3 yrs ago. Originally paralyzed on the right side. I used to race OC6, OC1, and V1. I now workout in my basement on a paddle erg. Slowly moving the right side. Have a TE Aito video to watch. Any recommendations for videos/DVD’s so I don’t go completely mad on the paddle erg. Thanks. I hope to get back on my OC1 this summer.
