Molokai2Oahu 2023 Results

The Molokai2Oahu was a full success and as far as the Foil Divisions go also ultra fast. Here are the results and the new times we have to get used to. The participation in the Men SUP Foiling Division will only grow from here and had tripled since the last race in 2019. From an over all perspective the race was fully sold out and the prone divison made the biggest one by far. From what we hear there were 60% first time participants over all.

Results by category

Wingfoiling Men

The wingfoilers are by far the fastest. They are super hard to follow with boats for content. Finn Spencer turned out to be the fastest in the water. Australian first time Aidan Nicholas a bit of a dark horse in this space made phenomenal second. Only 14 year old Bobo Gallagher came in 3rd. Big shout out also to Alan Cadiz who held an amazing time for the seasoned veterans out there.

SUP Foiling Women

The finish between Olivia and Annie was very painful. Olivia lost flight outside of China Wall where water was riddled with waves from all directions having to watch Annie fly by. Unfortunately Annie lost her flight not far down the line in the surf spot as Olivia really dug in and used all her SUP power to over take Annie in the final stretch in dead flat water.

SUP Foiling men

The mens field was extremely interesting and as we see in the results we have to get used to some new names. Big shout out to James Casey who won the SUP category back in 2019 and returned to the channel on foil. It was not until the final stretch inside China Wall were he was able to over take Oskar Johansson, a first timer at the M2O and definitely a dark horse in this race. A big surprise for the broader audience was that Kai Lenny did not make the over all podium, but as he said in the beginning: There are many new people and equipment developers in the race and could really be anybodies game.

For now the new record that will be chased is James time. In fact everybody including the 6th place beat Kai Lennys old record from 2019.

SUP Unlimited

The Unlimited SUP was won by Yusuke Hyogo who paddeled on one of Travis Grants old board surprisingly beating long time SUP Athlete and now North Shore Liveguard Mo Freitas. Tommaso Pampinella said he wants to come back to Hawaii and maybe do a relay race with his sister Cecilia.

As we can see from the times it was not a record breaking year.
