Jamie Mitchell Dominates Molokai Crossing

August 2nd, 2011

Hawaii  — August 1, 2011 — Kaenon Polarized’s Jamie Mitchell claimed the unthinkable, an unprecedented tenth consecutive win at the grueling Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboard World Championships on Sunday. Wearing the new Kaenon Hard Kore JM10 sunglass style, a custom-designed color commemorating his 10thtitle, Jamie led the prone division from start to finish, breaking his own course record, again, with a time of 4:40:31, and cemented his place as the most dominant paddler the sport has ever seen. “I was stressing about this one, more than the last 9,” said an exhausted Mitchell after he crossed the finish line, wearing the company’s newly released (today) Hard Kore sunglass in custom painted Matte Black/White color combo with Grey 12 SR-91 polarized lenses. “So many people were expecting me to win, including myself. In the end it all worked out perfectly. I couldn’t be more happy and relieved.” Comparisons to Michael Jordan or Kelly Slater have been made toward Mitchell, who has no peer in the sport of open-ocean padding, putting an exclamation point on his latest victory by earning an incredible 10th consecutive title. However, unlike Jordan or Slater, Mitchell announced after the race that he will officially be retiring from competitive open-ocean paddling to transition full time to his other passion – exploration and the pursuit of big wave surfing. He will continue to Stand Up Paddle (SUP), but will no longer train for the Molokai Crossing, leaving his prone paddling legacy untarnished.
