[RESULTS] Naish Paddle Championships (UPDATED)

The 7th annual Naish Paddle Championships were held today on Maui, with plenty of the world’s best SUP racers tackling the famous Maliko Downwind Run.

Despite the light winds providing less than ideal downwind conditions, over 200 paddlers took part, with 80% of those being Stand Up Paddlers (and the rest were prone paddlers).

It was Kai Lenny took the overall victory, just 11 seconds ahead of the man himself, Dave Kalama. That’s quite a feat for the young Maui charger when you think just how much downwinding experience Kalama has. It’s even more impressive considering Kai Lenny was paddling a 14 footer (the soon-to-be-released Naish Javelin LE, for the record), while DK and the other top guys were on Unlimited boards. Obviously the lighter winds took away from the usual advantage the bigger boards enjoy on the Maliko run, but that’s still a pretty awesome result either way.

Keep in mind this is all from a kid who splits his time on the water between five or six different sports, SUP racing being just one of them. Imagine if he trained for racing full time…

Coming in behind Kai and Dave was the Aussie dark horse Dave Kissane, squeezing out a couple of local all stars in Slater Trout and Livio Menelau.

Meanwhile in the women’s race it was Andrea Moller who added yet another trophy to her collection, proving she’s virtually unrivalled in downwind racing. Talia Gangini was 2nd with Devin Blish rounding out the podium.

Take a look at some great photos of the Naish Paddle Championships below (courtesy of Jimmie Hepp Photography) and then scroll down for the full race results.

Times have been adjusted for the staggered start (we think…), though it’s still a little confusing as the race organisers chose a complex Division system: There were 33 separate divisions, plus the paddlers who chose the Elite Division (to be eligible for prize money) haven’t had their results broken down by board class, so we’ve just assumed they were all on Unlimited boards.
