“Molokai is a big bite… and you better be ready for it.” – Gerry Lopez
The 2011 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships is the Super Bowl of the sport. It’s hard to believe that this year marks only the 15th running of the event, with Jamie Mitchell and Kanesa Duncan dominating the field through the last decade (he’s won 9 times, she’s won 8).
Wish there was an interview with Clark Abbey and Tom Stone recalling their initial crossing in 1996. I can imagine them hanging out the night before: “What, like try?” “Shoots.”
