The Hawaii Island Finals, presented by Red Nose is the prestigious and climactic Finals for the Stand Up World Tour for 2010. It will close the season and crown the first ever World Champion for the sport of Stand Up Paddling.

Title Race
With a legitimate title race now in play between Maui's Kai Lenny (17) and France's Peyo Lizarazu, it will be youth versus experience, as it all comes down to the wire at Honoli'i, with Kai leading the race with a win at home in Hawaii and 2nd and 3rd place finishes to complement this. Peyo Lizarazu has also got 3 podium finishes under his belt, but will have to put it all on the line to be crowned World Champion in 2010.

Major Contendors
Other major contenders include Oahu's Robin Johnston, Duane DeSoto, Molokai's Ekolu Kalama and Maui's Ikaika Kawai, as well as another Frenchman, Antoine Delpero and Tahitian Arsene Harehoe. Not to be counted out, especially in waves of consequence is event winner in Tahiti, Big Wave Dave Muir, as he hopes to finish out the year well in Hawaii’s powerful surf.

Local Talent
The Big Island is not short of its own talent coming into the event, most notably Ikaika Kalama, a wildcard for this event having missed all but Sunset this year, and Sunset qualifiers Kalani Kahalioumi and Kainoa Hauanio - with this level of talent, there are bound to be some surprises as these Big Island athletes come up against the Top 24.
