2011 PA’A Halloween Race



Here are some pictures that I took from this year’s PA’A Halloween Race. (The picture above is Ali’i Manny Kulukulualani coming in the lead) Pa’a runs a race series for paddling each year and has a theme for most of them. The Halloween race is fun to watch because racers dress in full costume and paddle the entire distance. Some even costume their canoes. Here are some of the fun costumes from this year’s race.

paa-halloween-race-2011-01 Ultralight Kamanu Composites 6 man canoe. I think this was the first canoe across the finish line. I believe this canoe is roughly 200 lbs or so. Most 6 man canoes are 400 lbs.
