Molokai 2 Oahu Stories: Part 1

Molokai 2 Oahu Stories: Part 1

In this multi-part series I’ve put together the first set of stories and perspectives on the world’s gnarliest paddle board race, Molokai 2 Oahu (M2O). Six of my past guests and current legends in the water — Lincoln Dews, Mick Di Betta, Morgan Hoesterey, Nick Franco, Leanne Horton, and Jeff Denholm — all share their past experiences paddling in the Kaiwi Channel (The Channel of Bones) including sinking boats, injuries, super heavy conditions, the first M2O event ever, competing both SUP and prone, logistical horror stories, and much, much more.

If you enjoy this story compilation I’d be stoked if you gave a nice rating of This Ocean Life in your podcast app or even better stop using plastics whenever possible so we can keep them out of the environment and out of the stomachs of our favorite ocean critters. Thanks!

As a strong SUP and 6-person outrigger canoe competitor Jenn shares her stories of developing skill on the ocean canoe (OC1) and surf ski, working through the challenges of racing across the Molokai Channel 3 times within a short few months, and her humble approach to pushing her own limits of endurance.
