Wahine looking for seat for Na Wahine

Had a crew and then didn't have a crew. Plane ticket purchased, lodging squared away, just looking for a seat. She can go open or masters. Let me know if you need a last minute replacement. She'll be flying into Moloka'i Thursday and will be ready to go. Let me know if you could use her.



Experienced captain,

Blade Face Size vs Body Weight

Can anyone tell share the relationship of a paddle blade face size and body weight. My initial assumption is that the heavier a person is (I am), the larger blade face you will need to prevent slip. If you know of a chart can you point me in the right direction?

Where to paddle?

Howdy, I paddle off Kailua beach and love it but it's getting kinda stale. Flat, Mokes, etc. Just wondering where you guys go around Oahu? I've done the Hawaii Kai downwind run but it's a little gnarly for me when I go alone or with my GF in the 2 man. Also I'd love to do some of the long swells off Waikiki but there's so much reef and I'm tired of pukas. Any good spots to launch over there that won't destroy my boat.

Thanks in advance!


Manu O Ke Kai Ocean Challenge

Koa versus glass in prelim regattas.

Hawaii state regattas coming up. OHCRA uses koa canoes it true that koa is optional in the prelim races for other islands and most outer island crews are on glass canoes? Just wondering if a spec glass canoe is faster then a spec koa in a regatta setting ?

Crating OC1 question

Need to crate an OC1 for shipping out of Oahu. Just wondering if anyone can provide contacts for this service and pricing if possible? Any information would be appreciated.

Va'a World Championships

Way to go Hawaii Juniors in the recent distance V6 Va'a championships. Silver...all good. The race with so many international participants should let Olympic committees know that the sport should be recognized. It was good to see that there were standards set for the canoes so no canoe advantage. Maybe those same standards should be applied to future international races...and if adopted by the entire global paddling community.....even our Molokai Hoe. The future looks bright Interesting that Tahiti.
