Congratulations to Zane Schweitzer for his record crossing of the Pailolo Channel for the 26 mile M2M (Maui to Moloka’i)

Had a crazy exciting race yesterday hydrofoiling the Pailolo Channel for the 26 mile M2M (Maui to Moloka’i) crossing. Super stoked to break the new record time across the #Pailolo channel and win overall between all crafts! My time was 2:24 with the help of the 25 knot winds and big swell.. Big mahalo to my team for the support firstly to my Dad and his crew on the escort boat; Uncle Joe and uncle Scott Shoemaker, my coaches Larry Cain (@pdlmnstr ), Uncle Braddah Kamansi (Native Action) and my brother @mat5o Matty Schweitzer! Also mahalo to my supporters and sponsors for the best equipment, #Starboard 6’9” HyperNut, @GoFoil Iwa, 5’ @revolwe #BioLeash, @vestpac #Hydration, and as well @kimyapmaui and @swellliving for the meal prep and race fuel! Here’s a snippet from the story I’ll be posting on @starboardsup’s Blog: From the water start outside of Fleming’s Bay on West Maui I look over my shoulder to see the brave crew of Hydrofoilers taking on one of the first ever major foil events, and today with the rain squalls and clouds we couldn’t see our finish let alone Moloka’i! On my side was Austin and Dave Kalama, Mark Rapahorss and Alen Kadiz. On the blast of the start horn, 40 minutes after the #SUP start, I popped to feet and felt like I had already made it to the flying position after 3 sprint strokes. From there I had a nice lead from the get go and Surfed the whole way flying besides one fall. Near the most excited part of the race with the biggest, fastest moving swell Dave Kalama had a line that seemed to be faster and he was gaining ground on me. Knowing and respecting the #waterman and talented open ocean racer uncle Dave is, I moved away from my dad who was my escort boat to feel the water further south towards the line @davekalama was following and realized quick I made a bad choice getting phyched-out by my competitor and not just following my straight line and the course my very knowledgeable father had me on!….. Read the whole story on this competition and 26mile Hydrofoil channel crossing, stay tuned to www.star-board-sup.com and www.zaneschweitzer.com #InZane #InnovateAndInspire #LiveTheTikiLife #DigDeep #LoyalToTheFoil #BeneathTheSurface
