Calling all Ocean Athletes and ‘Ohana!

Bluesmiths Paddle Imua 2016 Maui Hawaii SUP Race

Save-the-Date: May 7, 2016. It’s the 5th annual BLUESMITHS Paddle Imua Benefit Race along Maui’s legendary North Shore. It is a ten mile open ocean downwind paddle and 'Ohana Festival starting from the Maliko Gulch to the Hawaiian Canoe Club in Kahului Harbor. The race is all for the benefit of Maui’s children with special needs at Camp Imua. Registration is now open for Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP), OC1, OC2, OC6, Prone and Surf ski race entries. Paddle next to the top athletes in the sport right here on Maui. Everyone is invited and it's going to be an awesome day for all. Remember, it’s the Olukai Ho'olaule'a the week before so now there are two big reasons to plan a trip to Maui -- as if you needed one!
