Paddle Imua 2015, Presented by Bluesmiths Crafted Waterwear

It’s happening for the fourth time, and we are incredibly excited once again to be the presenting sponsor.

On May 9th Maui’s ocean community will pull together once again in a unique way.

Athletes of all abilities and from multiple disciplines will be paddling the ten miles from Maliko Gulch to Kahului Harbor and the finish line at the Hawaiian Canoe Club.

The great thing about this event is that it’s for the benefit of Maui’s children with special needs. This means it draws everyone and you’ll likely paddle with the biggest names in the sport like Andrea Möller, Sonni Hönscheid , Dave Kalama and Loch Eggers to name but a few.

If you are a paddler or ocean enthusiast, please come and either paddle or join the ‘Ohana festival!

Happy Easter, everybody!

Aloha and mahalo,
