Stand Up paddle race Olukai

Today we had the Olukai, stand up paddle race from Maliko to Kanaha.

Stand up paddle surfing became big in a short time. Downwinders, flatwater, waves, it's a hype and it's good... 5 Years ago only a hand full did it in Maui. Now thousands.
In the Olukai were about a 120 participants.
Because of the lack of wind it was a hard race.
Here some pictures of the event.
