- Competing in:
- Womens Open Division
Team Hang Loose is an eclectic group of women bonded by a pure enthusiasm for paddling! Paddling experiences range from novice to veteran, and Keauhou Bay, on the Kona Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, is our paddling connection. “Keauhou” means new beginnings, and it’s a fitting description of the diverse crew, which consists of an entrepreneurial cafe owner (if you’re in Kona, stop by Tracy’s Tasteeze); a senior veterinary technician, specializing in dolphins and other marine mammals; a marathon-running Kindergarten teacher; a massage therapist/professional cupcake maker; a travel/archaeology enthusiast; and a mother of two, pursuing her dream of starting a restaurant. Currently, three paddlers live in Kona, two in California, and one in Utah. To reunite and “hang loose” while paddling in the best city in the world is just too wonderful an opportunity for this team to pass up!
