...some new arrivals on our site
We’ve decided to share our space with a few like-minded companies... starting with a few, and adding more over time, we're building an online village for brands who build products for a lifestyle in, on and around the water.
In addition to a marketplace, we’re building a place for sharing stories. Stories that describe this shared love of the water, and the people and places that inspire us.
Come back to visit us often.

Racing the Molokai Hoe once is an accomplishment but "Nappy" Napoleon has done it 60 times. At 76, Nappy is still going strong. He is a steersman which means that he rarely gets out of the canoe during the entire five or more hours of racing. Nappy is an inspiration to us all and his love for paddling and his Ohana is evident in all that he does. Congratulations Nappy for your 60th crossing!
Legendary Paddler Joseph ‘Nappy’ Napoleon Steers his 60th Consecutive Molokai Hoe
By Kathy Muneno
Hundreds of paddlers took on the Kaiwi Channel today in the annual Molokai Hoe, but one paddler stood out among them.
Joseph “Nappy” Napoleon has been in 60 consecutive crossing. But for Nappy it wasn’t about how many, he has always taught that it’s about the heart and really, in the end, about love.
