Kauai World Challenge 2012

The Kauai World Challenge (April 21, 2012) race is primarily a ~40 mile relay for kayaks and one-man/two-man canoes, but they also have a short (10 mile) race for SUPs. This year, my training needed a jump start so I went along to chase down some SUPs :). Thanks for letting me join in!

Boy those SUPs are getting fast... and Gene is done getting lessons from me (now he takes ME to school!).

Along the way, I also found two of my favorite people: Laola and Kumu Kamu Aea racing their way in the 2-man canoe (Laola has to be the prettiest, fittest, and most competitive mermaid I know!).
