Participants from race 5 in last year's Makani Ikaika O Molokai race series. The series returns in March for its second season.


The Stand Up Paddle Association of Molokai (SUPAM) will be starting its second annual race series with Makani Ikaika O Molokai.

New for 2012 will be the introduction of a one-man division. The main goal of this grassroots-level series is to have fun and condition for the bigger races around the state.

There will be two courses: Kamalo to Kaunakakai Harbor for advanced paddlers, and One Ali’i Fish pond to the Harbor for beginners and intermediates.

SUPAM will be conducting training sessions on Tuesdays for advanced paddlers from 3:30-6 p.m., and on Thursdays for the beginners/intermediate from 4-6 p.m. Weekend training runs and early morning sessions will also be held for advanced paddlers that are interested in getting more time on the water.
