Paddleboards were laid to rest yesterday after completing the Quiksilver Edition Molokai to Oahu Paddleboard Race. The custom-made boards are usually constructed with a polyurethane core with a fiberglass shell, although some feature hollow or solid cores. The boards that won the 32-mile race are known as unlimited-class boards, which average 17 feet and have a rudder steering system.
