Molokai To Oahu – Race Recap by Connor Baxter

2010-molokai-to-oahu-race-recap-by-connor-baxter-09

Molokai to Oahu – 32 mile Crossing across the Ka’iwi Channel. Before this race I felt so prepared because that week I ate super good, drank lots of water and rested. My mom and I went over to Molokai Friday night on the Ferry to Kaunakakai. Then headed over to the west side and stayed at the condos right where the event was. I slept in on Saturday and then went for a swim – I basically had a super relaxing day. Around 5:00 the race meeting started and then I had a huge dinner and went back to the room – and went right to bed to get a good night sleep.

Stand Up World Tour France leg airing on Eurosport 2 at 7pm Wed 28 July(CET)

Waterman League

Airing on Wednesday evening at 19:00 (7pm) Central European Time is Stand Up World Tour stop number 2, in Anglet, France. Supported by Ron House and Gerry Lopez boards and presented by O’Neill, this event witnessed some of the most high performance stand up paddle surfing to date by the athletes of the Stand Up World Tour, as well as the emergence of some serious local French threats, challenging the strong Hawaiian presence on Tour and demonstrating that France’s stature as a capital of European surfing is well deserved.

How to Catch and Connect Ocean Bumps with Doug Lock and Todd Bradley

oc2-instructional-with-doug-lock-and-todd-bradley-2

I did a Hawaii Kai downwind run with Doug Lock and Todd Bradley a while back. Todd was on a prototype C4 Switchblade and Doug and I rode his Wave Blade OC-2, 2 man canoe. The conditions were a nice 15 mph east trade wind and a great following tide which made the bumps connect really nice.  I shot some video of the tips I got from Doug and Todd. I am now convinced that the best way to learn how to ride and connect open ocean bumps is to go with someone who is experienced and go in an OC-2.

Garmin Partners with Prestigious Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard Race

Famous GPS Will Prove that 32-Mile Channel Isn’t Always 32 Miles Across!

Todd Bradley to Host GPS & Finish Line Clinic, Wednesday July 21

With more Molokai Channel crossings to his name than years on Earth, you could be excused for thinking that Todd Bradley could paddle the Molokai2Oahu paddleboard race blind-folded; 2010 will be his 53rd crossing at 50 years of age. But through all his seafaring, Bradley has learned two things when it comes to the ocean: No two days are the same; and the Molokai Channel isn’t always 32 miles across!  Continue reading ‘Garmin Partners with Prestigious Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard Race’
