Keiki x MBX

Our keiki, which is Hawaiian for "child", are the future of paddling. The group consists of boys and girls 19 and under, and as young as 9 years old! This page was created to support the needs that come with training, racing, and overall safety of our kids on and off the water.

Currently, our kids are training for MBX (Monterey Bay Crossing) on September 30th, 2017. There are 9 boys and girls ranging from 13 years old to 17 years old. This will be the first full keiki crew to compete in this 26 mile race from Santa Cruz to Monterey. They will be racing against other adults in the Open Traditional Coed division.

Thank you for your continued support for our keiki.

These big water races have extra expenses that need to be addressed. Which is where we need your help.

We've created a PayPal to support current and future expenses for the keiki. These donations will go to fund:

  • Race fees
  • Travel expenses
  • Housing
  • Equipment
  • Uniforms
  • Chase boats
  • Race nutrition
  • Gas
  • Repairs, Maintenance, and Upkeep
