That had to be the best race yet! 20 Longboard Racers from Maui, Oahu, the Big Island, Australia and the US-Mainland came to Maui this weekend for the Hawaii Winter Outlaw Series tour stop „The Maui Challenge 2014″. The boys were racing hard, on a not all that easy race course. The start was right before a sharp left hand turn going into a tricky long stretch of several smaller turns before heading at full speed into a sharp and steep right-hander shortly before the finish line.
Zach Newman and Dakota Camp (both Team Iliffe Truck Co.) did a good job organizing the race. The final was between Zach and Longboard Pro Matt Kienzle, who is a part time resident here on Maui. After a tight race it was Matt who had a good lead over Zach and came across the finish line +/- 8 Seconds before Zach.
Everybody was super stocked on the race and despite some hard carshes no one go hurt.
See you next year.
