Maui Jim Ocean Shootout
Cancelled for 2019
The Maui Jim Ocean Shootout is off for 2019.
Maui Jim is proud to announce the Maui Jim Ocean Racing Series (“MaJORS”). The 2019 event series includes four Hawaiian islands (Kauai, O’ahu, Molokai and Maui) and The Gorge, Washington-Oregon spanning six months. The MaJORS brings ten of the Pacific's top ocean racing events under the Maui Jim banner and consists of a unique blend of Hawai‘i’s unique and traditional ocean disciplines including swimming, one-person and six-person outrigger canoe, surfski, stand up paddleboard and prone paddleboard.
The OCR features a 32-mile, 2-person coastal relay of various race craft but is dominated by O’ahu’s top outrigger paddlers on a spectator-friendly course around the spectacular southeastern coast of Oahu. This event began in 1995 and is expected to attract around 200 participants.
This classic Pailolo channel race is from Maui (DT Fleming Beach Park) to Kaunakakai, Molokai. The 26 mile open ocean race offers some of the best downwind surfing conditions in the state of not the word. A must do for serious downwind paddlers.
First held in 2002, the KWC is a 34-mile 2-person coastal relay traversing Kauai’s wild and scenic southeast side. Spectator friendly viewing areas are found at designated relay transitions in Kapaa Ballpark (race start), Hanamaulu Beach Park, Kalapaki Beach, Poipu Beach Park, and the Salt Pond (finish line). The KWC is anticipated to attract over 125 of Hawai‘i’s top Outrigger paddlers.
The MJMC is estimated to attract nearly 100 elite paddlers from around the world. The Molokai Challenge began in 1977 and is the longest running channel race in Hawai‘i, with a course spanning 32-miles across the Kaiwi Channel. The MJMC is the Superbowl of competitive surfski paddling and is a true test of endurance and perseverance, as participants must navigate the often-unpredictable channel weather conditions and currents.
The Maui Jim Paddleboard Race honors Duke's legacy in a 10 mile paddle race starting in Hawaii Kai and finishing in Waikiki. This event is steeped in history as a traditional paddleboard race that has evolved with the growth of SUP and OC-1.
