If you like high-speed downwind windsurfing racing, there is only one place to be this weekend: The BLUESMITHS Maui Slalom Race at Kanaha Beach Park. It’s the first event in the legendary 5-part Maui Race Series and we are excited to be the title sponsor, not least because we've competed in this many times. Maui is the unofficial home of windsurfing and it's fair to say in its 31 years, the Maui Race Series has seen more fast downwind slalom action than any other event in the world. It's the longest running windsurfing event in the US and we have every kind of competitor from the enthusiast to the professional. Our friends at Hi-Tech Maui organize this event. Many of our test team will be competing. If you are in Maui, come visit us at Kanaha Beach Park this weekend.

210 paddlers. One 13 year old hydro foiler.
