The Moloka’i Holokai, which took place on last July 8 and 9, is a 27mile Pailolo Downwind Channel Crossing, an open ocean SUP, canoe, paddleboard and foil championship from Honolua Bay to Kaunakakai, Moloka’i. On the first day, Zane participated in wingfoil, where he won the event and broke this famous record. With almost 40min less than his previous record, Zane has once again pushed the limits of our watersports. 27mi in 1h33, is an average speed of 15kts (28km/h), so, quite fast ! On the second day, Zane rode his Starboard XTRA as a SUP foil, and finished second.

Here is Zane’s feedback on this race and this record:

“So much love for Pailolo and so grateful for another 50 miles of solitude on the channel over the weekend for the @molokaiholokai 2022! Made a goal of beating my personal best record from Honolua to Kaunakakai 27 miles. Craft of choice for this was #WingFoil on my 5m Pro, and finished the 27mile crossing in 1:33, the new Pailolo record for all crafts! Day 2 rode #SupFoil with my @starboardsup Xtra to mix it up then sailed back to Maui before the end of the day. Mahalo Nui to the Mawae Ohana for hosting the event yet again and huge mahalo to my ‘ohana and friends on Moloka’i for the aloha and good times!”

For this Moloka’i Holokai 2022, Zane Schweitzer used the Freewing Pro 5m and also the new Starboard 5’2″ XTRA. This new board that has just arrived on the market is made for super early foil action, create maximum control at high speed, keep balance in critical moments and minimize drag while in the air, while minimizing movement between foot and foil.
