Joel Parkinson paddles Molokai To Oahu, real soonPosted 26 Jul 2012, by STABmag
Not for no reason is it called the ‘Channel Of Bones’. The gruelling paddle between Hawaiian islands Molokai and Oahu is a 52km haul that Joel Parkinson’s gonna cross with trainer Wes Berg on July 29, for the Paddleboard World Championships. “It’s just something I’ve always wanted to do but never had the chance,” says Joel. “It’s a huge personal challenge and there’s just something really primal about getting on a board and paddling to an island you can’t even see over the horizon.”
How else do you fill a two-month break between WT events, huh?
