Free Shuttle Service

To further help you enjoy the 9th Annual OluKai Ho‘olaule‘a, we would like to introduce the OluKai Ho‘olaule‘a Ho‘o Holo Holo, a complimentary shuttle service for racers and their equipment from Kanaha Beach Park to Maliko on Saturday April 29th and Sunday, April 30th.

The Details:
  • The Ho‘o Holo Holo is free for racers and will use custom padded trailers and comfortable busses as well as the existing Moore Water Time shuttle service.
  • Racers will load and unload their own boards with assistance from our drivers.
  • The busses will travel with the loaded trailers.
  • A complimentary bag will be provided in which to place personal effects, if needed.  These bags may be left at a secure Bag Drop area in Maliko and picked up at the complimentary OluKai slipper tent at Kanaha
  • Ho‘o Holo Holo will depart promptly in order to get everyone to Maliko in time for Registration and the Pre-Race Briefing.

We are providing this complimentary service to eliminate the need for anyone to drive their personal cars into Maliko to avoid traffic jams and stress to spouses, parents and friends. We ask that anyone not using the complimentary Ho‘o Holo Holo shuttles please car-pool with 4 or more participants.

Please sign up for one of the following departures by emailing your full name and requested time to: norihubbs@mac.com.
