This year is gearing up to be an exciting winter of racing. The boys on the Big Island will be throwing the series opener race with a 1v1 showdown through a fast sweepy course with a big left drift right before the finish. This is a brand new course that we have not raced here on the Big Island so get stoked, it’s going to be a fun one!
Course begins at start, ends at 31 seconds.

The second event of the series will be The Maui Challenge. We will be competing 1v1 on a single lane dream course with speed, grip and plenty of slip. All you could ever ask for in a downhill race course. In past years Maui has proved to be the battle ground with many people showing up from out of state and even out of country. Competition is sure to be fierce! You don’t want to miss the sessions happening during this event!

As the racers compete in the three race events they will earn points based on their placement in the race. Each race is worth a whopping 185 points for 1st, with 2nd earning 170, and each place thereafter earing 5 points less (eg. 3rd = 165, 4th = 160, 5th =155 and so on). Its crucial to make it to each and every event in order to be considered for a podium position at the HWOS!
Don’t miss out on this exciting Winter of downhill skateboarding! January is coming up quick, so get your tickets, get your training wheels on and go for a rip! We’ll see YOU for the HWOS Big Island opener!! Cheehhooo and keep them wheels turning!
