Victory in the stand-up paddle (SUP) men’s and women’s divisions went to Maui’s Dave Kalama (4:54:15) and Andrea Moller (6:00:00), both setting records for their respective divisions. The windy conditions and disorganized waves proved an advantage for Kalama who said, “There are a lots of really good sprinters, but I'm not one of them, so the windy races are what I train for and what I'm built for."
In the men’s traditional paddleboard division, Australian Jamie Mitchell, 33, claimed an unprecedented ninth title, completing the 32-mile distance just four minutes outside of his own record in a time of 4 hours, 52 minutes and 45 seconds. In the women’s traditional paddleboard division, Hawaii's Kanesa Duncan-Seraphin, 34, took top honors for the 8th time with a time of 6:02:45 - less than 10 minutes shy of the record she set in 2004.
