Molokai to Oahu 2010

Campbell Farrell (winner 2008) crossing the Molokai Channel



Jeremy Stephenson and Campbell Farrell teamed up to race this year on a Starboard 14'0 prototype.  Jeremy is heading for Maui in early July to train on the water with the top Kiwi Big Wave Surfer - to win.  It will be his first attempt at the Molokai-Oahu, after this year winning NZ's version of the race, the Mount Pacific Downwind.  Campbell won the 2008 Molokai-Oahu SUP with team-mate Buzzy Kerbox.


The Challenge: 32 Miles of Open Ocean

Regarded as the world championship of paddleboard racing.
Traverses 32 miles of rough water from the North Shore of Molokai, to the South Shore of Oahu.
Covers a depth of 2,300 feet and is subject to open-ocean swells of up to 30 feet.
Considered one of the roughest ocean channels in the world.
Ultimate test of endurance – no engines or sails, just a paddler and the propulsion power of his arms.
Wildy varying open-ocean conditions challenge a paddler’s surfing skills.
Top paddlers can ride swells for 100s of yards.
Capricious currents and tidal effects test a paddler’s ocean navigation skills.
Record crossing time: 4:45:03, set by Jamie Mitchell in 2004.
