Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships
Registration for the 17th annual Molokai-2-Oahu Paddleboard World Championships (M2O), presented by Kona Longboard Island Lager, opens Friday March 15th at 12:00 PST. The event, scheduled for July 28th will draw an international field of paddlers and, as in previous years, sell out far in advance of the July 1st registration deadline.

M2O is much more than a championship race. It is a 32-mile journey from Molokai to Oahu across the Ka’iwi Channel – one of the deepest, most treacherous channels in the world. The ever-changing conditions of this channel requires both athletic ability and navigation skills – a true championship test. M2O is the iconic event in the paddling community and has become the milestone for those seeking to define themselves as watermen. Like other iconic endurance events M2O is a deeply personal experience and defines a champion in every sense of the word.
The images and stories from the M2O race fuel the minds of paddlers across the globe driving the passion that propelled paddling as the largest growth segment in action sports today. M2O is infused with the culture of Hawaii and its people and all who attend will feel the enigmatic spirit of Aloha.
