The Butterfly Effect is presented by GlideSoul! The all-women water sport downwinder will take place on the North Shore of Maui, Hawaii. The course is a 5k paddle perfect for all levels. Bring your sisters, moms, daughters, aunties, and friends! It is a perfect day to celebrate each other, nature, health and happiness!
The Butterfly Effect is a global ALOHA movement that started on Maui with Tatiana Howard and her windsurf friends. They loved events and the community that it bonded but didn’t like the competitive aspect. Together they created their dream event, highlighting women in watersports, spread the word by coconut wireless and now it has grown into 50+ events in 19 countries with thousands of “Butterflies”.
The collaborative events’ message is to share your Aloha, BE kind, BE love, and Be The Effect you wish to see in the world, always moving forward by one conscious step towards betterment at a time. This year will be different from the past events. Since it is its 11th year in the making, sign up online will be mandatory to be listed on the invitational list. All activities that were once on the beach after the paddle will take place in Paia at Nourish Bar and Cafe. Please see below for the different levels of involvement and activity access.
