Paul Franco and Aaron Culliney: friendships beats all challenges

Paul Franco and Aaron Culliney are the first kiteboarders to have successfully crossed from Kanaha Beach (Maui) to Shipwreck Beach (Lanai).

The Brazilian and the Hawaiian conquered this place in history without a support boat, on the 10th June. The 50-mile kiteboard cross was made in three hours.

Watch the journey.
