At some point in their paddling lives, most outrigger enthusiasts will entertain thoughts of racing across the Ka'iwi Channel, after all, the Moloka'i Hoe and the Na Wahine O Ke Kai ( women's race) are historically the World Championships of Outrigger Canoe Changes Racing. For the crews that travel from another country to do this race, the logistics, preparation and planning for a successful crossing, will be as challenging as the great race itself, so why not learn from the experience of those gone before you.
Over the past 19 years of racing this Event, The Mooloolaba Masters/Sen Masters, have won nine Masters’ and four Senior Masters’ Titles, usually in the top 10 or 20 overall out of 100+ canoes, an unparalleled feat. In this Documentary, we follow the Crew in the 2010 Event, as they prepare, race and discuss the formula that made them so successful. I'm sure on viewing, you will discover the secrets and follow in their awesome wake.
This concept is not new. If you do a video search for "powerful beyond measure" you will come across a bunch of videos with the same speeches and soundtrack. But I had a friend ask if I could do the same thing using paddling footage. This is the result.
