ALOHA sports and suncare fans…
A Hawaiian Punch of Paddling with Anna Mathisen, the Kailua Canoe Club and a Big Hat.
Anna Mathisen and maiden mates from the Kailua Canoe Club took on the 33 mile E Lau Hoe women’s canoe race, padding to a fifth place finish. The Kailua Canoe club had 3 women’s teams in the top 10 of over 50 crews- a stellar achievement. Sights set now on the “Big One” – the Na Wahine O Ke Kai — the women’s Molokai-to-Oahu championship race on 26 September. A shot of Anna and crew digging in. Planet Sun also on site suncare support at the recent “Race Around the Hat” OC-1 (one man) paddling race . Staged at and around the famous China Man’s Hat on Oahu’s east shore making for a beautiful and challenging venue. Paddle On.
Trish Havey smiled for 24 hr straight hours at the recent race 24 Hours of Hell in Paradise mountain bike race in the storied Kualoa Ranch,Oahu. Trish part of a smokin hot All Women’s team of 5, called Mr. P’s Muddies. Trish reflected on crashes, dislocated fingers, stitches, and being chased on single track by spooked cows. The stuff we love. Trish later shook off the mud to join us at the Na Wahanie Triathlon All Women’s Triathlon in Honolulu . Mr. Sunshine on hand and very happy armed with Sunscreen pumps and application duties. A pic of Trish and muddied mates and debut as hat/head model
