Race Finish:

Kai Wa'a canoes are built and designed by paddlers in Maui, Hawaii. We also have a factory in China that we work with closely. Our goal is simple, to bring you the best canoe for your size and paddling style. We took a proven design and created alternate versions with slightly different specs so every paddler will have a boat that is right for him or her. Our canoes are proven in the ocean and on the racing circuit. You will find that Kai Wa'a canoes surf well, glide well, are comfortable to ride are built with the highest standards.

Ozone, formerly known as Maui Fiberglass, has been designing and building canoes for 20 years. Ozone builds the Ehukai, Hurricane, Pegasus, Scorpius, Scorpius XM, Scorpius XS, Storm, and Tempest. They also make spray skirts for a variety of OC-6 canoes. Their latest product is the new unlimited OC-6 canoe.

2016 Like Poke Season Opener Results

These results are based on the times/order that paddlers crossed the finish line. Due to adverse conditions, many paddlers turned around early for their own safety, so some paddlers covered a lot more distance than others.
