Molokai Hoe Set for This Weekend

This Sunday seeing the 65th running of one of the most storied outrigger races in Hawaii – the Molokai Hoe. Over 1,000 paddlers participate in this race across the Ka’iwi Channel to Oahu.

In this video from M7M Video, Oahu’s Hui Nalu Canoe Club shows us what it takes to compete in this amazing event.  Oh, and the Hui Nalu Club? It’s older that the Hoe.  It was created in 1908 by Duke Kahanamoku and others. So, there’s some serious tradition going on here!
