Ashley R.

Club President

Started paddling in 2014. Member of the Kahakai Women's crew that still holds the MBX Iron Record - 4:01:00. I love a good distance race with a great crew of women and/or men that make the experience unforgettable--it's like running a marathon in stride with five great athletes supporting you every step of the way. Sign me up for an OC1 Cabrillo to LB downwinder anytime!

Board Member

Paddling for over 10 years now. Started with another local club when my youngest was a Keiki paddler. Started on OC-1.  Joined Kahakai and found it to be a more productive practice and training.

I have paddled 9-man Kona and finished the Catalina Crossing four times. Each crossing is different, and each is an amazing experience that keeps me coming back.
