  • The Maui Jim OceanFest will try to accommodate the field of participants with available equipment (Surf-Ski’s/OC-1’s/SUP/Prone).
  • SUP’s will be limited to 12’6″.
  • Prone Paddleboards cannot exceed stock, 12′.
  • Participants are encouraged and welcome to bring their own equipment to the event but are NOT restricted to having their own gear. Sharing of the equipment provided by the MJOF will not only be mandatory by the very nature of the event but necessary given the obstacles to getting equipment to the venue (this is especially obvious for our international participants). Sharing of equipment will be optimum and both Race Officials and Race Marshall’s will be aware of the need for heats and participants to be sharing equipment. Patience and Aloha between participants will be greatly appreciated to facilitate heats taking place in a timely fashion. MJOF will also have plenty of staff/volunteers on site to transport equipment back to the starting line as heats and finals finish their races.
  • Following the Maui Jim Molokai Challenge (May 30th) Surf-Ski’s and OC-1’s will be trailered and shipped to Maui for the MJOF competition.
  • Anyone wanting to get their personal equipment on a trailer please contact the Event Director to reserve a spot

** SPECIAL NOTICE: SUP’s IN ALL RACE DIVISIONS WILL BE LIMITED TO INFLATABLE 12’6 ″ and will be provided to all competitors free of charge. A variety of inflatable SUP brands will be made available to competitors. Prone Paddleboards cannot exceed stock, 12′. All other equipment is open division.
