Molokai Done And Won!!

Sorry once again I forgot to write on my blog the whole time I was in Hawaii! But I am stoked to write now that on the 28/07/13 I won the Molokai 2 Oahu World Paddleboard Champonships.

It was a hard year out in the channel with cross winds and a dropping tide. I crossed in 5hours 46mins:13sec, 6mins ahead of last year's winner, Jack Bark. It was a great race again this year with Jack and me side by side at the half way mark. My team on my boat were amazing with my Dad, brother Jye and boat captain, Uncle Mark and his son Evan -- I couldn't have done it with out you boys keeping me feed and on my line.

To my family (Mel, Miah, Marlo) and my coach Lisa Robinson, and training mates Jamie & Jamie, you help make this possible. And of course to my sponsors: Patagonia Inc, SurfTech, Dragon Eyewear, Reef shoes and JM SUP.CO -- with out your help I would probably not have made it there. I can't wait for next year to cross that channel again...
