Kanaka Ikaika Racing Association (KIRA) is a 501C3 organization dedicated to promoting and perpetuating ocean paddle sports in Hawaii since 1976.  An organization by paddlers, for paddlers, we encourage a lifelong healthy lifestyle that will support paddle athletes at all levels to foster competition, sportsmanship, and develop confidence. KIRA supports and promotes health and wellness of our community while helping to maintain and perpetuate our island culture and heritage, as well as to help preserve, protect and enhance Hawaii’s coastal environment.

KIRA operates on a shoestring budget which allows us to keep a racing circuit alive. However, to accomplish the goals in our mission and do more positive activities for the community, its youth and the environment, we need financial help. We welcome your tax deductable donations. Please contact us at 808 524-6677, or email Jim Foti at jkfoti@gmail.com.
