When race pioneers John Gangini and Blair Thorndike decided to continue with this year's Maui Paddleboard Championships, Adventure Sports Maui stepped in to sponsor the event.
Sunday, July 20, will be a special time on the North Shore of Maui. Athletes from all over the world will congregate there in preparation for the Molokai 2 O'ahu Paddleboard World Championships, elevating the level of competition at the 2014 Adventure Sports Paddleboard Race to a level that is like no other in Hawai'i.
This year's race will be the classic Maliko run, ending at the Hawaiian Canoe Club (HCC), where there will be food, beverages and activities for the keiki. With a distance of 9.5 miles, it is the perfect warm-up for the competitors who will be competing in the M2O the following week.

There are not enough programs on Maui that promote both a healthy and active lifestyle and a love of the ocean in our keiki, and those that do exist are often underfunded and struggling.
In support of one such program, a portion of the monies raised in the Adventure Sports Maui Paddleboard Race will bene?t the Hawaiian Canoe Club Keiki Program, a truly worthwhile program that enhances the lives of Maui keiki.
While at the end of the day, the Adventure Sports Maui Paddleboard Race is a competition, the sponsors strive to support the 'ohana spirit-seeing old friends and making new ones, all while supporting community involvement and programs.
