Molokai 2 Oahu
Sunday 26th July 2015

The World Championship of Long Distance Paddle with a course of 32 miles

Youth in Motion selected 3 team members to represent Molokai in this World Famous Race. SUP is still new on Molokai and Alex Mawae is charging and promoting the sport of SUP at such a young age.

Youth In Motion carefully selected 3 other young paddlers as opposed to Molokai adults. The Molokai team all have ties to Molokai with Alex born and raised on Molokai, Kalia's Mom spent her summers with her Grandparents in Waillua, (Cuelho )on Molokai, and Lara's Dad heavily involved with the Molokai Baptist Church.

This team represents Molokai with one common goal in inspiring Youth to go to the next level.
